7 things to do in a week around Llandudno
Published: Thursday 18th Oct 2018
- A visit to Llandudno would not be complete without a stroll along the impressive promenade. This can be enjoyed by everyone, those in wheelchairs, on bikes or walking. Take a stroll down the Grade II listed pier, the longest in Wales or visit the famous Punch and Judy show, open at weekends and school holidays.
- The Great Orme Country Park rises above Llandudno, you can drive to the summit, walk, or take the cable car or tram way. At the top is a café, good children’s play area and visitor centre. The views are stunning, and many circular walks can be taken from here. The Marine Drive is a toll road running around the Great Orme and an impressive drive, cycle or walk.
- Venue Cymru is north Wales’ top theatrical stage. Visit a show or one of the many events held here and make a holiday of it by extending your stay.
- There are a wide range of places to eat out from the usual chain eateries you find in most towns to high end dining at Bodysgallen Hall, wood fired pizzas at Jonny Dough’s, Ice creams at Parisella’s or good coffee at Providero
- National Cycle Route 5 runs all the way along the coast through Llandudno. Traffic free for many sections this is perfect for children and you could even get the train back if energy levels fade!
- The Great Orme Bronze Age copper mines have self- guided tours down into the 4,000-year-old mines. Open March to end October.
- A short drive or cycle away is the famous Conwy castle and walled town. Look around the castle itself, walk along the walls, visit the thriving little town and eat chips on the quay, or visit the smallest house in Wales for a unique experience.
*Oh, and I have to mention the artificial ski/snowboard slope and 700m toboggan run! Open all year and perfect for pre- ski holiday training*
