Things to do in North Wales
If we put our mind to it we could probably come up with activities and things to do that covered the entire alphabet.
‘A’ is easy. It stands for Arts (lots of this). ‘Z’ is pretty simple too. That’s Zoo (Colwyn Bay Mountain Zoo).
‘B’ stands for Boat Trips or Beachy Activities, ‘C’ for Crafts, Castle-Spotting or Canoeing … you get the picture.
At one time, long ago – well, not that long, actually – we were happy simply to sit on the beach. Nowadays, if you want that kind of experience you go on ‘fly and flop’ holidays, which actually can be quite stressful, especially since they often come with lots of airport hassle.
Far better to do something when you’re away – as many of you have discovered.
Lots of our visitors nowadays come for new experiences, or to pursue a favourite activity or hobby. They’ll follow walking and heritage trails, possibly with a guide. Or beat their own paths to some of our hidden gems.
Watersports enthusiasts will give the fast-growing activities of kitesurfing and stand-up paddleboarding a go. And they’ll certainly make a bee line for Colwyn Bay’s fabulous new Watersports Centre.
Food, drink and shopping also play their parts. Our food scene is fresh, healthy and very local (think Conwy mussels and succulent mountain-reared lamb) and there’s great retail therapy too (Llandundo is North Wales’s top shopping centre).
And when the lights do down Llandudno’s Venue Cymru cranks up the excitement, staging everything from opera to pop, drama to alternative comedy.
