Wales

Llandudno

Unlike most other resorts, Llandudno has remained largely unchanged for over a century.  So why not take a stroll along the elegant promenade past pastel-coloured hotels ad impreccably authentic seafront architecture just like the Victorians did?  All that’s needed to complete the picture is a frilly parasol (for the ladies) and a straw boater (for the gentleman).  Llandudno’s appearance is down to the fact that, it has the longest pier in Wales, donkey rides on the beach and canopied shopping streets just behind the prom.  Put simply, Llandudno is a classic of its kind.  Llandudno’s sense of harmony extends to its geography.  The main North Shore beach is perfectly framed by two headlands, the Great Orme and Little Orme.  Over the former – linked by a spectacular Marine Drive
