Llandudno

Llandudno in North Wales became famous as a Victorian seaside resort in the mid-nineteenth century with the building of a railway into the area and has become Wales' largest holiday resort.


Llandudno Bay is a 2-mile stretch of sand and shingle between the headlands of the Great Orme and the Little Orme.

The Parade in Llandudno is a line of hotels, guest houses and shops parallel to the sea and was laid out in the Victorian period. Also situated on The Parade are the North Wales Theatre and The North Wales Conference Centre.

Llandudno's attractions include the Great Orme Tramway that runs up to the Great Orme for views over Llandudno Bay as far as Angelsey and its Grade II-listed pier. The town hosts a Victorian Festival over the May Bank Holiday.


Nearby attractions include Conway Castle and Caernarfon Castle. Llandudno is on the A546 and is a short drive from Colwyn Bay. From Chester follow the A55.
