Llandudno and Colwyn Bay

With a possible connection to the story Alice in Wonderland, it’s not surprising that Llandudno should be such a wonderland itself. From the magic of its Victorian pier to the secrets of the 700-year-old Conwy Castle, there’s always something new to explore in Llandudno and Colwyn Bay.

Located on the tip of the North Welsh coast, this area is home to some of the best beaches and seaside entertainment in Wales. No trip is complete without a journey on the Great Orme Tramway, which takes you more than 200 metres above sea level to an ancient limestone headland. From here, you can enjoy views stretching out across the rest of the country – and, of course, make friends with the local goats that live at the top.

If it’s views you’re after, Llandudno’s location means you’ll be spoilt for choice. The quiet West Shore Beach faces the mountains of Snowdonia, while anyone who braves the climb to the top of Conwy Castle will be rewarded with a spectacular panorama. This World Heritage Site is one of the best-preserved ancient castles in Wales today, complete with medieval royal apartments and battlements.
