The scheme will run for an initial 12 months.
If successful we would like to continue the scheme with a view to inviting other sectors such as food, hospitality and eventually retail businesses to offer discounts to Conwy Card Holders.
Why is this happening?
Conwy County Borough Council Staff volunteered to participate in an annual event called Improving Conwy. Teams of staff from all over the county were asked to come up with ideas to Improve Conwy.
The team focusing on tourism recognised the importance of tourism to the local economy, that times were hard financially for the private and public sector and on all our pockets; so, among many other great ideas, we came up with the idea of developing a Residents' discount card.
How has this been funded?
The Project Team was awarded funding from Tourism Partnership North Wales and The Outdoor Tourism Project which is part funded by the Ireland Wales Programme 2007 - 13 (Interreg 4A). Without their support this scheme would have remained just an idea.
Where can I use my Conwy Card?
You can check the list of participating tourist and outdoor activity attractions on this page or you can visit Conwy's Tourist Information Centres in Llandudno, Conwy and Porth Eirias for information about the scheme. All of these services require production of the Conwy Card.
How do I receive my Conwy Card if I receive my Council Tax reminder electronically?
If you print off your e- billing statement and take it to any of Conwy County’s libraries or Tourist Information Centre’s you will be able to collect a card from them.
