Things To Do in Llandudno & Conwy

If we put our mind to it we could probably come up with attractions and things to do in Llandudno 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 Welsh Mountain Zoo).

‘B’ stands for boat trips or beach activities, ‘C’ for crafts, cable cars, castle spotting, canoeing or Colwyn Bay beach … 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.

In terms of active things to do in Llandudno, the casual walker will fancy taking a walk on the famous Llandudno Pier, and for the more determined walker, attempting to conquer the Great Orme will be a rewarding feat.

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 Watersports Centre.

If you're a surfer in search of the perfect wave, you might be surprised to find it in the green Conwy Valley. Newcomer Surf Snowdonia is the world’s first inland surfing lagoon, with its revolutionary Wavegarden® and spectators can watch the action from the onsite restaurant and bar.

Things to do in Llandudno is not just limited to activity and attractions - 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.

And another firm favourite that attracts big audiences is the nine-screen multiplex at Llandudno Junction.
