Llandudno – TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice 2015
Situated on its own peninsula between the Great Orme and Little Orme Heads, Llandudno boasts two superb beaches. The shingly North Shore (outside our Leisureplex Hydro Hotel) is the busier of the two with its Victorian Pier, boat trips, donkey rides and much more. The sandy West Shore is quieter with miles of sands and panoramic views of the Snowdonia mountain range in the distance.
Llandudno is a highly attractive resort with its magnificent crescent of hotels, broad tree-lined streets and elegant shops all combining to produce a unique atmosphere. There are two golf courses. A tramway and cable car both offer a route to the summit of the Great Orme (which also boasts a superb dry ski slope – one of the best in Britain).
There is plenty to do both by day and by night and you are sure never to have a dull moment at what many would claim to be the most complete of all British holiday resorts.
Torquay is one of Britain’s most famous resorts, situated at the head of 22 miles of unspoilt coastline, often referred to as the “English Riviera”. It has a mild climate, sparkling blue waters and in its beautiful public gardens you will see subtropical plants and palm trees.
Torquay has something to offer everyone: by day you can relax on one of the clean sandy beaches, explore the bustling harbour and marina and the excellent shops or if you are feeling more active there are lovely walks, or activities such as sailing, bowls, golf or fishing.
The many local attractions include Paignton Zoo, Babbacombe Model Village, Kent’s Cavern, Torbay Steam Railway and Cockington thatched village. Torquay’s harbour-side has recently been redeveloped and features Living Coasts, a fascinating wildlife attraction adjacent to our Leisureplex Regina Hotel.
Blackpool – TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice 2015
Few resorts anywhere in the world can rival the popularity of Blackpool – Britain’s Capital of fun! The world famous Blackpool Tower, three piers, miles of golden sands, the spectacular Pleasure Beach with its breathtaking “white knuckle” rides, atmospheric trams, horse drawn carriages, a Sealife Centre, Madame Tussauds Waxworks, a Zoo Park, an Art Gallery – Blackpool has them all!
Be sure to save some of your energy for the evening and sample the terrific summer shows, lively bars and pubs, for it is at night that Blackpool really stands out as the most exciting of all Britain’s resorts. For a complete contrast to the sheer energy of Blackpool, the excursions included in our itineraries takes us to some of the most serene scenery in Britain including the Ribble Valley and the Lake District.
