Plas Mawr stands as a symbol of a prosperous, buoyant age.
The Elizabethan era. A golden age? Think Renaissance and Shakespeare. Think Plas Mawr. An Elizabethan gem worth its weight in gold. The finest town house of its period in Britain.
Its owner Robert Wynn, an influential merchant of great repute, was particularly fond of grandeur and colour. He also liked entertaining. Lavishly. Behold his finest hour, a grand house built between 1576 and 1585 in the heart of medieval Conwy’s narrow cobbled streets. A house which more than matched his grandiose ambitions.
Particularly exquisite is the ornamental plasterwork in the hall, now repainted in vivid original colours. There’s not an inch that doesn’t impress, from plasterwork ceilings to friezes and skilful carpentry. Look out for the initials ‘RW’ on various crests and coats of arms, lest you forget the master of the mansion and payer of all bills.
If wealth was measured in style, then this well-travelled Welsh gentleman was absolutely fabulously wealthy.
While not available in Wynn’s day, you can now take advantage of multi-sensory displays to delve deeper into Plas Mawr’s history. We positively encourage you to be hands-on with our touch-screen technology!
