Bodlondeb Woods

Where's a good place to walk on a day when Welsh drizzle covers the hills? I can recommend Bodlondeb Woods. Park just outside the town walls of Conwy at the council offices at Bodlondeb.
This is free parking on weekdays, but pay and display at weekends.
You enter the trail near to the butterfly park.

 Great views of Deganwy Marina across the Conwy estuary. The Princes of Gwynedd used to have a castle atop the hill which King Edward the First demolished and built into the foundations of his new castle - his way of saying Game Over!

There are many paths through the woods which can be muddy in wet weather. There are many interesting species of trees and ferns.
There are some clearings with seating areas and when I visited some beautiful bluebells 

There are tantalising glimpses of Conwy Castle as you walk through the woods towards the top of the hill.
