PLACE: Conwy, Wales
Are you looking for a good excuse for a holiday in Wales, in the middle of October?
The answer is called Conwy Feast, an extraordinary event that combines music, gastronomy, art and craftsmanship.
A Festival that will take you to a magical land, full of traditions. With the evocative Castle as a background. You will have a fantastic holiday.
Three days of gastronomy, with Street-food and incredible culinary proposals, along Quayside and High Street. At Craft Beer Bar and The Feast Bar, two fantastic bars along Quayside, you can enjoy drinks and the best craft beers.
Lancaster Square will also be home to interesting gastronomic initiatives.
And, again, workshops, cooking demonstrations, and lots of activities dedicated to the younger guests of the Festival. The farm with animals is very popular with young and old.
Between the stands and exhibition spaces, you can discover the work of designers and artists from Wales.
HOW TO GET

Anyone wishing to arrive by train will have to take into account the rather high travel times, due to changes.
Daily connections are guaranteed with Chester and Holyhead.
Conwy Railway Station, however, is located right in the center.
