Llandudno town guide
Llandudno is a great coastal resort of North Wales, comprising of two very different beaches within a short walk of each other. North Shore, with its Victorian air, Pier, promenade of splendid Georgian style terraces of white painted hotels, and the South Shore with its quiet boating lake and spectacular views over to Conway Mountain and Anglesey.
North Shore has the Little Orme at one end of the sweep of beach and the towering headland of the Great Orme at the western end. A drive around and to the top of the Great Orme makes a splendid trip, or you can take the San Fransisco style Great Orme Tramway to the top. You will be rewarded with the most wonderful views. A walk up the Orme can be even more rewarding for the more strenuous or how about a trip on the cabin lift-whichever way you go, you are in for a treat.
Llandudno also has an artificial ski slope - so when you have had enough of the beaches, practise your skiing!
If you can tear yourself away from the coast, a hire car will take you into Snowdonia National Park. How about a trip to the top of Snowdon- Wales' highest mountain-on the Snowdon Mountain Railway-or you could always do it the hard way and walk up.
Visit Conwy with its mighty castle and ring of ancient well-preserved walls and famous suspension bridge. Further down the Conwy valley is Betws-y-Coed in its superlative setting of dense woodland, ancient bridges and cascading waterfalls. The Festiniog Railway from Portmadog to Festiniog makes a wonderful day out too.
