Llandudno in Wales is one of the country’s premier holiday resorts and is situated in the County of Conwy. Because of this, there are lots of attractions in Llandudno that can be enjoyed by everyone in the family whilst staying in this beautiful coastal town.
The town itself lies between two very carboniferous headlands known as Great Orme and Little Orme. The town faces the Irish Sea on one side and to the other is the estuary of the River Conwy. It is not only these headlands but also the West and North shores which make this location so appealing to tourists.
The Great Orme reaches a height of 680 feet and is home to Tudno Church, the Great Orme Copper Mines and is a stop for the Llandudno Tramway. Also living here are more than 100 Kashmiri Goats and were originally gifted to the town by Queen Victoria after she received them from the Shah of Persia.
As for Little Orme, but it is still 463 feet high and is the ideal location to view the Great Orme, Anglesey and the mountains in Snowdonia. Its cliff face offers bird spotters the chance to see razorbills and cormorants. Further back in time, one of its caves held a printing press that printed various Catholic prayer books.
In the town itself, you can visit The Alice in Wonderland Centre which features all sorts of characters from the famous book. Llandudno was chosen to host the museum as Alice Liddel lived in the town as a child.
As you’d expect for a coastal town in the UK, Llandudno has a pier. The structure was actually designed and built in only one year by James Brunlees and Charles Henry Driver and then officially opened in 1878. If you choose to walk along the pier, you’ll come across a number of small, ornately decorated, buildings that house a bar, cafe and amusements. Plus there are even ones selling gifts that you can take as presents for family and friends.
During the summer months, the Isle of Man Steam Packet launches from the pier. You can choose to sail across to the Isle of Man on your own or as part of one of the organized trips. The pier itself since first being constructed has several extensions and has been renovated as well and it now measures a total of 695 metres.
