Welcome to Llandudno


The largest seaside resort town in Wales, Llandudno is a small city with a great deal of Victorian flavour. Nestled in a rocky coastline that was once the haunt of Viking ships, the city's rows of peaked houses are framed by forests on one side, and blue-flag certified beaches on the other.

Popular from the Victorian era, some of the top attractions in Llandudno are manmade: the longest pier in Wales is located at the end of the north-shore promenade, and features food, entertainment, and relaxation at its pavilion, and boat trips. Bodafon Farm Park is a working farm turned tourist attraction that also houses a bird of prey sanctuary.

Active visitors to Llandudno will enjoy Happy Valley, which boasts an artificial ski slope and toboggan run, miniature golf, hiking trails and a cable car to the summit of the Great Orme. The surrounding areas of County Conwy offer their own enticements, including golf, quad biking, hiking, and a number of interesting castle ruins.

Llandudno has a lively nightlife that fits its small size, with a variety of restaurants, cafes, and bars to entertain locals and tourists. A must-try is the ice cream at Fortes, which has been freshly made for over a century. The city has its fair share of cultural pursuits, with a ballet, opera, and regular orchestral concerts. Llandudno also has a small but active gay community, which frequents the clubs in Upper Mostyn Street along with much of the younger population.
