Queen of the Welsh Resorts: Holidays in Llandudno
The town of Llandudno in Wales – also known as the “Queen of the Welsh Resorts” - offers you the very best in Welsh holiday attractions and accommodation. The popular seaside resort is situated on the Creuddyn Peninsula in the Irish Sea. Situated on a flat land between the Great Orme peninsula and the Welsh mainland, pioneers built it specifically as a Victorian holiday destination town. Victorian and Edwardian influences remain strong amongst this otherwise modern area.
Popular attractions include the two award-winning beaches; North and West Shore as well as the Welsh Mountain Zoo and the amusements on Llandudno Pier – the longest in Wales. The Pier is also home to the Pavilion Pier Theatre, Victorian kiosks and a fairground. The town also offers boat sightseeing boat trips, fishing trips and even speedboat trips for the adrenalin-seekers. The two beaches can be reached by the Llandudno Land Train which regularly runs between the West and North Shore beaches. Not only practical, but also rather fun as this colourful, trackless train is great fun for the little ones and allows perfect views of the coastline. Ride the historical Llandudno Cable Car to the summit of Great Orme, the longest cable car system in Britain. From the top of Great Orme, you can see the mountains of Snowdonia and the island of Anglesey.
