Attractions in Llandudno & Conwy
In a nutshell. Sea lions, Punch and Judy and Swallow Falls - Llandudno attractions are perfect for all the family.
Where to begin?
Up in the Welsh Mountain Zoo overlooking Colwyn Bay with ring-tailed lemurs and sea lions, or along the prom at Llandudno Pier - the longest in Wales stretching out 2,295ft over the sea with its array of amusements, cafes and bars?
At beautiful Bodnant Garden in the Vale of Conwy widely regarded as some of the best in the UK, where there are terraced gardens, lawns and wild gardens and the huge range of plants and flowers from all over the world.
Or amongst the lakes and moors of Mynydd Hiraethog at the Llyn Brenig Visitor Centre?
Llandudno attractions come in all shapes and sizes – quite literally.
How about Conwy’s quirky ‘Smallest House’ - a tiny red painted one up one down that measures a miniature 3 metres high by 1.8 metres wide, or Rhos-on-Sea’s delightful Harlequin Puppet Theatre for bite-sized starters?
Followed by nature on a grand scale at Betws-y-Coed’s spectacular Swallow Falls on the Afon Llugwy, famous the world over and rightly so, or the Great Orme Country Park Visitor Centre high above Llandudno where you can discover more about the 400 types of wildflower on the limestone cliffs and learn about the seabirds including razorbills and fulmars that you are likely to spot.
Llandudno attractions play to a big and varied audience.
We’re home to farm parks and heritage centres, family amusements and boat trips, new leisure parks and perennially popular Punch and Judy.
Our heritage are a big draw too.
Dramatic 13th century Conwy Castle towers over one of the best examples of a medieval walled town in Europe.
But the castle and town walls built by English King Edward I are just part of our story.
Based at Conwy Tourist Information Centre, the Princes of Gwynedd exhibition is a great place to learn more about our very own Welsh Princes.
