Llandudno in Wales is one of the country’s premier holiday resorts and is found on the northern coast of Conwy. Because of this, there are lots of attractions in Llandudno that can be enjoyed by everyone in the family whilst staying in this beautiful coastal town.

The town of Llandudno sits between Great Orme and Little Orme. The town faces the Irish Sea on one side and the estuary of the River Conwy on the other. It is not only these headlands but also the West and North shores which make this location so appealing to tourists.

The Great Orme reaches a height of 680 feet and here you will find Tudno Church, Great Orme’s copper minds and is a stop for the Llandudno Tramway. Also living here are more than 100 Kashmiri Goats and were originally gifted to the town by Queen Victoria after she received them from the Shah of Persia.

As you’d expect, Little Orme is smaller, this only rises 463 feet above Llandudno Bay and makes a good viewpoint to see it’s cousin Great Orme, the town of Anglesey and even across to Snowdonia. The cliff face is also home to a wide variety of different coastal birds including Razorbills, Guillemots and Cormorants. Further back in time, one of its caves held a printing press that printed various Catholic prayer books.

In the town itself, you’ll find The Alice in Wonderland Centre where one can enter through the Rabbit Hole and visit the world of Alice along with the Cheshire Cat and the Mad Hatter. The centre was opened, as Llandudno is a place where Alice Liddel the inspiration for Lewis Carroll’s book, spent her childhood.

As you’d expect for a coastal town in the UK, Llandudno has a pier. The pier can trace its history back to 1878 and was built in just 12 months. If you choose to walk along the pier, you’ll come across a number of small, ornately decorated, buildings that are home to a bar, cafe and traditional amusements. Souvenirs can be found in the gift shops on the pier.

In the summer, the pier is where one can get the Steam Packet boat from to sail over to the Isle of Man. You can choose to sail across to the Isle of Man on your own or as part of one of the organized trips. Over the years, the pier has been extended and now stretches 695 meters out to sea.
