Great Orme Tramway, Llandudno

Llandudno

In a nutshell. Bill Bryson’s favourite seaside resort.

Who could possibly argue with that while strolling along Llandudno’s elegant promenade past pastel-coloured hotels and impeccably authentic seafront architecture just like Victorians did?

All that’s needed to complete the picture is a frilly parasol (for the ladies) and straw boater (for the gentlemen).

Llandudno’s appearance is down to the fact that, unlike most other resorts, it has remained largely unchanged for over a century.

There’s a pier (the longest in Wales) and Punch and Judy, donkey rides on the beach and canopied shopping streets just behind the prom.

Put simply, the undisputed ‘Queen’ of the Welsh resorts retains its period dignity.

Llandudno’s sense of harmony extends to its geography.

The main North Shore Beach is perfectly framed by two headlands, the Great Orme and Little Orme.

Over the former – linked by a spectacular Marine Drive carved into the sea-cliff, you’ll find a second beach, the West Shore.

It was here that Alice Pleasance Liddell, who inspired ‘Alice in Wonderland’, holidayed as a child.

Completed in 2014, the Alice Trail takes you to over 40 points of interest around the town. And now two exciting town trail apps have been launched; the White Rabbit and the Alice's Looking Glass.

The resort’s genteel appearance is deceptive.

Llandudno is bursting at the seams with things to see and do.

Take the San Franciscan-style tramway or alpine cable car to the summit of the Great Orme Country Park, soak up the dizzy views then disappear underground at the prehistoric copper mines.

Whizz down the Orme on the dry ski slope, the centre gives skiers, snowboarders and bladers, of all ages the chance to practice, learn new skills, or start from scratch. And don't miss the Cresta run.

At 750metres long it's the longest toboggan run in Wales!

Visit Llandudno Museum and MOSTYN, a cutting-edge art gallery, or play golf at classic championship courses. And when the lights go down Llandudno's theatre -  Venue Cymru comes into its own as a leading centre for theatre and entertainment of all kinds.
