Llandudno located in the centre of the North Wales coast is by repute "The Queen of Wales seaside resorts". Llandudno has retained its Victorian charm and genteel ambience whilst most of its competitors have gone the way of modernised commercialism. In 1848 Lord Mostyn decided to develop the marshy land behind Llandudno Bay as a seaside holiday resort to cater for the increased demand created by paid holidays for workers. Since then Mostyn Estates have been pivotal in the managment and conservation of Llandudno as a holiday destination.
Llandudno Bay and the North Shore - This wide sweep of sand and shingle extends two miles in a graceful curve between the headlands of the Great Orme and the Little Orme.
For most of the distance on Llandudno's North Shore there is a wide curving Victorian promenade separated from the roadway by a strip of garden. The road, collectively known as The Parade, has a different name for each block and it is on these parades and crescents that many of Llandudno's hotels are built.
Llandudno Pier - The award-winning pier is on the North Shore; it was built in 1878, and is 1,234 feet (376 m) in length and a Grade II listed building.
Great Orme - This great limestone headland has many attractions for the tourist including the Great Orme Tramway that takes tourists effortlessly to the summit.
Victorian Extravaganza Every year in May Bank Holiday weekend, Llandudno has a three-day Victorian Carnival and Mostyn Street becomes a funfair.
Venue Cymru - The North Wales Theatre, Arena and Conference Centre, built in 1994, extended in 2006 and renamed "Venue Cymru" is located near the centre of the promenade on Penrhyn Crescent. It is noted for its productions of opera, orchestral concerts, ballet, musical theatre, drama, circus, ice shows and pantomimes.
