Opening 9th December
Conwy Culture Centre
Conwy’s new Culture Centre is just a stone’s throw from Conwy’s magnificent medieval town walls. The centre contains the county archive, an area library, heritage exhibitions, a community arts hub, meeting room, and café.
It’s a great starting point to explore the rich story of Conwy County. The exhibitions on display take visitors through five thousand years of history complete with unique objects, beautiful works of art and family-friendly interactive interpretation.
A library and much more; this is a bolt hole, a place to relax or get some work done. Somewhere to sit back and relax with a good book and a coffee. Ever tried your hand at local or family history research? Now is the perfect opportunity, with friendly staff available to help you get started.
The landscaped areas around the centre include a peaceful sensory garden with dementia-friendly and accessible paths and seating. You can listen to local voices tell their stories as you admire the medicinal plants in the Physic Garden; a link to the rich monastic history of Conwy before the castle.
Conwy Culture Centre is working towards becoming Dementia Friendly.
The Culture Centre and sensory garden are funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Conwy County Borough Council, the Welsh Government (Museums, Archives, Libraries Division), the Welsh Government Rural Communities - Rural Development Programme 2014-2020, which is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Welsh Government, Gwynt y Môr Community Fund in partnership with Conwy Arts Trust, Arts Council Wales, LDT Communities Fund, Thomas Howell Education Fund for North Wales and the Welsh Historic Garden’s Trust.
