The town of Llandudno developed from Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age settlements over many hundreds of years on the slopes of the limestone headland, known to seafarers as the Great Orme and to landsmen as the Creuddyn Peninsula. The origins in recorded history are with the Manor of Gogarth conveyed by King Edward I to Annan, Bishop of Bangor in 1284. The manor comprised three townships, Y Gogarth in the south-west, Y Cyngreawdr in the north (with the parish church of St Tudno) and Yr Wyddfid in the south-east.
So what’s not to like?
Llandudno’s immaculate seafront, gracefully framed by two headlands, is a seaside classic. It’s a proper resort, with a pier, Punch and Judy and Donkey Man and even Alice in Wonderland. Plus arty and other modern attractions that add the perfect contemporary touch.
In a word (or three): Llandudno’s got taste.
Llandudno also has some classy neighbours – world class, even.
In this part of the world, short breaks, holidays and things to do come in all shapes and sizes. We have amazing Blue Flag beaches, the great orme, the Llandudno pier, the Llandudno cable cars, excellent theatres, a fascinating conservation zoo, top-draw golf courses, mighty big mountains and green valleys, some amazing restaurants, pubs and a complete A to Z of outdoor activities including kitesurfing and paragliding.
And that’s just for starters.
You’ll find sandy beaches, shopping , sports and activities on land and water, walking trails and wildlife.
It’s all here…
Llandudno is Wales’s largest resort with a multitude of hotels, traditional B&Bs and other attractions, uniquely situated between the Great and Little Ormes with two wonderful beaches, the award winning North Shore and the quiet, sand duned West Shore.
Llandudno has kept its Victorian and Edwardian elegance and splendour, despite its modern attractions.
