5 Haunted Places to Visit in Conwy, North Wales

NIA JONES gives us a rundown of Conwy’s most haunted places to visit

Conwy Castle

Conwy Castle

A site of outstanding medieval architecture, built for King Edward I around 1283-87AD Conwy Castle has a long and bloody history of battles and struggles, the beautiful castle still stands after all its years of turbulence and is always filled with visitors. Once upon a time it is believed there stood a holy monastery near the castle in Conwy, two spectral hooded and robed monks have been reported appearing within the castle walls and standing along the turrets, sometimes even spotted nearby on the quayside. The monks seem stationary, hanging in the air with no feet; they have no real facial features just  pale outlines with dark craters for eyes.So strong and terrifying is the presence of these ghostly monks, dogs have refused to be walked by their owners within the castle grounds, dragging back towards the castle gate in frenzy. Some say that the appearance the monks are an omens that foretell a disaster about to befall the area.
