Llandudno is set on a rugged coastline, nestling between the Great and Little Orme, overlooking the Irish Sea. The resort lies at the foot of Snowdonia National Park and just a short distance away from the Isle of Anglesey.
Llandudno is Wales’ largest resort with a magnificent crescent of hotels, broad tree-lined streets and elegant shops. Llandudno has a kaleidoscope of diverse activities with something for everyone. There are two golf courses, bowling greens and tennis and badminton at its sports centre. A Victorian tramway and a spectacular cable car offer a route to the summit of the Great Orme, offering incredible views and fascinating wildlife.
There is an abundance of historic and cultural sites, including Bronze Age mines, Roman roads, Druidic ruins and medieval castles as well as art galleries and exhibitions, such as the Oriel Mostyn. With its festivals, events, concerts, fairs and special displays, Llandudno guarantees that there is never a dull moment.
The resort is surrounded by places of natural beauty, as well as bustling towns and picturesque villages. Snowdonia with its mountain range and deep valleys is a contrast of breathtaking panoramic views, teeming wildlife and intriguing rivers, lakes and streams.
The coast is a mixture of bustling harbours and historical treasures such as the imposing medieval castles at Conwy and Caernarvon and their walled towns. It is this heady mix of contrasts which have helped to establish Llandudno as one of Wales’ best loved holiday resorts.
We use the Hydro Hotel, a Leisureplex Hotel.
The town centre consists of carefully preserved architecture placed within a superb natural setting. The Victorian Shopping Centre, one of the largest indoor shopping centres in Wales, offers both quality and value as well as award-winning restaurants and tearooms.
Beach and Gardens
The resort boasts two superb bathing beaches and spectacular gardens. The lively north shore has a shingle beach and Victorian pier whilst the west shore boasts golden sands and panoramic views. The Bodnant Gardens, set above Llandudno, have magnificent plantations and command excellent views across the resort and surrounding coastline.
