Llandudno, Queen of the Welsh Resorts, a title first implied as early as 1864 is now the largest seaside resort in Wales,
and lies on a flat land between the Welsh mainland and the Great Orme peninsula.
With two award winning beaches, Llandudno North Shore beach and the quieter,
sand dunes West Shore beach.
Llandudno has kept its Victorian and Edwardian elegance and splendour,
despite its modern attractions.
The North Shore is Llandudno’s principal beach and is a sheltered beach with a long Victorian pier
and wide promenade and set in the shadow of the impressive Great Orme headland.
Llandudno’s popular swimming centre and Bodafon farm park are both just over a mile away from our hotel.

Great Orme Copper Mine
Uncovered in 1987 during a scheme to landscape an area of the Great Orme, the copper mines discovered represent one of the most astounding archaeological discoveries of recent times. Dating back 4,000 years to the Bronze Age they change our views about the ancient people of Britain and their civilized and structured society 2,000 years before the Roman invasion.
Over the past 28 years mining engineers, cavers and archaeologists have been slowly uncovering more tunnels and large areas of the surface landscape to reveal what is now thought to be the largest prehistoric mine, so far discovered in the world.
Great Orme Tram way
The Tramway climbs a mile (1500m) through the Great Orme Country Park and Nature Reserve to the Great Orme’s spectacular summit. Re-live the experience of travel more than 100 years ago in the lovingly restored original tramcars, each named after a Saint.

The Llandudno cable cars have been running every year since June 1969 and are renowned for being the most comprehensive passenger cable car system in Britain. This inimitable experience continues to be one of the town’s most popular tourist attractions, as well as the Great Orme Tramway which, opened in 1902 and is now ‘Britain’s only surviving cable street tramway, and one of three in the world.’
