Llandudno & Around
Famed for its Victorian style and Edwardian elegance, there are so many reasons why people keep returning to Wales’ premier seaside resort of Llandudno. Llandudno has two beautiful award winning beaches which means you’re clean and safe whatever you choose to do at the seaside. And it’s quite a choice.
On the North Shore (the one with the pier) there’s a glorious promenade with classic victorian frontage. Even if you venture no further you’ll still find enough here to fill your days. There’s fair ground rides and stalls on the Grade II listed Victorian pier, with a vintage bus leaving for a tour of the Marine Drive when you’re done. Something more dramatic? Try some theatre or a show at Venue Cymru or maybe the Punch and Judy Show. Throw in a bandstand, donkey rides, a spot of fishing and miles of sand and you’ve got everything a seaside holiday is meant to have.
But if your tastes have matured somewhat, Llandudno still has its unique charms. Explore the Bronze Age copper mine on the Great Orme, take a boat trip, spend time shopping down Mostyn Street or sample some of Wales’ best food and drink in our fabulous restaurants and pubs.
