Llandudno

Miniature golf, penny arcades, Punch and Judy shows and stunning beaches can all be found in Llandudno, one of Wales’ oldest resorts.

Lllandudno is located on the Creuddyn Peninsula and is Wales’ largest resort. Since the 1800s, it has been known as the “Queen of the Welsh resorts” and, as you explore its elegant architecture, magnificent beaches and old-fashioned seaside attractions, it’s easy to see why. Llandudno’s seafront, framed by a pair of dramatic headlands, is graced with some of Wales’ finest Victorian and Edwardian architecture. Don’t miss the pier, Punch and Judy show and Donkey Man. Inland, the town resort turns into a charming maze of narrow streets. A towering medieval castle watches over Llandudno, with a series of well preserved walls which line the surrounding streets. Within a short distance of the resort, you’ll find some of Wales’ most beautiful countryside and coastline, where you can cycle, hike, surf and try your hand at a variety of outdoor pursuits.

A day on the seafront would be incomplete without a wander along the award-winning Llandudno Pier, a beautiful, graded structure which dates back to the 1800s and features cafes, restaurants and various nostalgic seaside attractions. Don’t miss Leisure Island and the Deck Arcade, an old fashioned penny arcade, packed with the games and slot machines of yesteryear. Halfway along the pier, you’ll find a series of funfair rides and at the end, a bar and café with views along the coast.

Another Llandudno must-see is Happy Valley, an eccentric garden with a miniature golf course, putting green and open air theatre. It’s also here that you’ll find one of the resort’s most famous attractions, the Great Orme Cabin Lift, the UK’s longest aerial cabin lift. Passengers enjoy spectacular views as the cabins glide through the air, on their two-mile journey.

There are some excellent places to eat in Llandudno, from award-winning fine dining restaurants to popular fish and chips takeaways.

Home Cookin’ is one of the resort’s best-loved eateries, serving food all day, including afternoon tea, light lunches and evening meals, all at very affordable prices. One of the area’s best Italian restaurants is Mamma Rosa, a family-run business where you can enjoy a variety of authentic dishes, seafood and steak. Another good option is Top’s, a colourfully decorated Chinese restaurant which has earned a reputation among Llandudno locals for excellent service and delicious food.
