Beautiful towns are scattered all over the country. Daffodil Hotel has named some of the best and prettiest in the UK in a list that provides endless inspiration for Britons looking to explore the UK.

A Conwy town was named as one of the prettiest towns in the country.

Just missing out on a top 10 spot, the Welsh market town had a lot to offer for holidaying Britons.

Llanrwst is an historic town in the Vale of Conwy.

Britons who want to visit may wonder how to pronounce the name of this beautiful town.

It’s klan·ruhst.

With pronunciation out of the way, visitors will want to explore some of the most interesting and prettiest features of the town.

Pont Fawr (Great Bridge), the three-arched bridge spanning the river Conwy is one of the highlights of Llanrwst.

The bridge is one of the first thing visitors will see and cross to get into town.

On Tripadvisor, Steve B said: “This really must be one of the most iconic views in North Wales.

“The view both ways from the bridge is historic and scenic. At the heart of the Conwy valley, on the edge of Llanrwst, it must have appeared on thousands of picture postcards and photographs.”

Tony J wrote: “This bridge is one of the wonders of Wales but not necessarily if you’re driving a motor home.

“It’s worth exploring this gorgeous little feature, and when you’re here do check out Llanrwst which is a fantastic little town, housing in its parish church the Mausoleum of Llewelyn Fawr. Just outside the town is Castell Gwydir. Well worth a visit.”

The stone coffin of 13th-century Prince of Gwynedd Llywelyn the Great can be found in Gwydir Chapel, St Grwst’s Church.

Gwydir Castle is a rare Welsh Tudor manor that’s been called “a hidden gem”.

On Tripadvisor, David S said: “The ‘hidden gem’ moniker is overused but absolutely appropriate in this case. Visitors expecting another largely ruined Welsh hilltop castle will be in for a surprise as it’s actually a wonderfully preserved late medieval house set into a hillside.”

John Brown called the castle “stunning”.

He said: “A true hidden treasure in Snowdonia, very atmospheric and peaceful.”

Britons in search of more historical houses can head to the National Trust Tu Hwnt i’r Bont, a 15th-century house located across the bridge.

The chapel Gwydir Uchaf was built by the owner of Gwydir Castle and it’s famed for its ceiling painting.

Britons in search of nature should go to Gwydyr Forest, home to the local Robin Hood, Dafydd ap Siencyn.

There are two lakes, Llyn Geirionydd and Llyn Crafnant, which are also worth a look at.

Jonny S, reviewing Llyn Geirionydd, simply said: “What a place.”

Helen L said: “The lake is stunning.”
