Known as the Queen of Welsh Resorts since 1864, Llandudno is one of the finest traditional seaside towns, boasting excellent attractions, fine restaurants, great night life, super sporting facilities as well as local, regional, national and international culture. So whatever your interests there will be no shortage of things to see and enjoy, that a holiday here will provide a truly memorable experience.
With two fabulous beaches Llandudno is ideal for families. North Shore has a graceful pier one of the longest in Britain, which offers boat trips, donkey rides on the beach, a well known Punch and Judy Show, bands on the prom and a whole host of summer events and activities. West Shore offers a sandy shoreline backed by sand dunes, with breathtaking views westwards along the coast towards the Isle of Anglesey and Puffin Island and is ideal for a day out on the beach whether it be to sit in a deckchair, build sandcastles or play the myriad of beach games.
Naturally Llandudno is ideally placed for watersports but within a forty minute drive there are over forty golf clubs offering some of the best coastal courses in the UK, as well as plenty of activities for those that want more action-packed adventure!
Llandudno is also an area of outstanding natural beauty retaining much of its Victorian character and charm, but aside from soaking up the natural beauty the town has a wide and varied history so is ideal for a cultural break. Visit the Great Orme on the longest cable car lift in the country which rises to a height of 651ft above sea level or on the Great Orme Tramway, the only cable-hauled tramway still operating on British public roads and while at the summit, visit the Great Orme Bronze Age Copper Mines which will give you a fascinating insight into the lives of these prehistoric people by allowing you to go on an underground visit, watch an audio-visual display and observe archaeologists at work.
Llandudnos central location also makes it the perfect base for exploring the rest of North Wales including the World Heritage Site of Conwy, Bodnant Garden which is one of the most beautiful gardens in the UK as well as the many castles and fortresses.
