The town became a victim of the famous or infamous Beeching cuts. But the station has been reopened!

Notes Conwy is well known for its narrow streets. Although there is on street parking and several small car parks, it is not unusual for it to be difficult to find parking.
The town operates a one way system for all vehicles which makes the placement of bus stops particularly difficult. Buses do terminate and depart from several different points. If travelling by bus, do be sure to check exactly which stop you require for your homeward journey!
