Conwy is a county borough in North Wales. Several of Wales' top attractions are concentrated in this small area, including Conwy Castle, the resort of Llandudno, and a large part of Snowdonia National Park. Snowdon itself is usually accessed from Betws-y-Coed here, though the summit lies in Gwynedd.
