Llandudno town is situated between Conwy and Colwyn bay, on the North Wales coast. This lovely seaside resort is now the largest in Wales and holds the title, Queen of the Welsh Resorts, given to it as early as 1864. Specifically built as a mid-Victorian era holiday destination, it takes its name from the ancient Parish of Saint Tudno.
Llandudnos north shore extends two miles between the headlands of the Great Orme and the Little Orme. This graceful, sweeping curve of sand and shingle has a wide Victorian promenade separated from the roadway with a strip of garden. Along this parade there are a number of blocks, each named and housing a variety a guest houses and hotels.
Llandudno has a whole range of attractions worth visiting on your short break or holiday. North Wales Theatre sits near the centre of the bay, with the Llandudno Yacht Club towards the end section of the Parade. Beyond the Parade, in the township of Craig-y-Don guests are able to choose from more excellent hotels and Guest Houses.
The Parade becomes Colwyn Road at Nant-y-Gamar with the Promenade continuing to its end where there is large paddling pool built for the children. Visitors may want to take a walk along Llandudno's award winning Pier, with is a grade II listed building and now stands at 2,295 feet in length.
On a clear day, guests standing at the end of the pier are able to see the Mountains of Snowdonia, rising over the town. It was originally built in 1878, but a curious major extension was planned and in 1884, the pier was extended from its original 1,234 feet, along with the opening of the pier pavilion theatre.
This fine traditional seaside resort has a wealth of first class hotel accommodation, small bed and B&B's and guest houses. Acclaimed travel writer Bill Bryson once stated in a national newspaper that Llandudno is his favourite seaside resort.
