Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a sight! If you like unusual settings, then put this on your bucket list. It's certainly not the longest suspension bridge but it is certainly one of the interesting ones.

Personally we found the bridge interesting but can't help feeling it's totally unloved & just sat there in case your path crosses it, could do so much more to make a wonderful historic structure more appealing & interesting to visit.

After visiting the castle, we took the quick walk across the suspension bridge. I found it kind of average, especially after seeing the magnificent castle. A nice walk about, but nothing special.

Visiting Conwy at Easter, finally got to walk over the original suspension bridge in Conwy.
Stunning work of Victorian engineering - just surprised that the metal is sunk into the side of the walls of Conwy castle - can't see planning allowing that today!
Well preserved marvel of the industrial revolution.

Conwy is famous for its three bridges - the suspension bridge, the tubular railway bridge and the 'modern' road bridge, built in 1958.

The suspension bridge was built by Thomas Telford betweern 1822–1826 at a cost of £51,000, to replace the dangerous ferry crossing. It was part of his A5 route for a mail coach road between Holyhead and Shrewsbury. It was one of the first road suspension bridges in the world and the end supporting towers were built to match the towers of the castle.

The bridge was closed to traffic when the new rtoad bridge was opened, but is open for pedestrians. At one end was the toll keepers cottage still with its list of tolls and small garden. Unfortunately this is currently closed.

This is a lovely, interesting, and historic suspension bridge. It was built in the 1820s and thus was one of the first modern suspension bridges built, making it an important engineering achievement at the time. It was designed to evoke and blend in with the castle to which it is attached at the entrance to town. It is now open to pedestrians and bicyclists. There is an old told booth at one end. It is certainly worth a look for the views and the character.

Built in the 1820's and constructed to match the architecture of the 13th century castle, this was one of the first suspension bridges in the world. No longer open to cars, for a small fee, there is a pedestrian path which provides striking views of Conwy Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and beautiful views of the River Conwy and the surrounding countryside.

To think the bridge was still used till the 50’s. Such a pretty and photogenic bridge. Great views of the castle too and the tunnel which trains cross over the river. An engineering feat indeed.

Constructed 1822 - 1826 by the famous Thomas Telford.
This was to be part of an improvement to the Chester to Bangor road.

Typical of alot of UK holiday locations nowadays, pleasant but in need of some investment to bring it back to life.....tired looking shops and buildings etc. Remember going many years ago and it seems to be a bit more "run down" than I recall. But this is no different than many UK holiday resorts, which I guess is why people go abroad so much!. We had an otherwise enjoyable week however nonetheless.
