Things to do in Llandudno

Things to do in Llandudno

Llandudno is the largest seaside resort in Wales and still retains much of its Victorian character and charm.  It stands on a peninsula jutting out into the Irish Sea, between the headlands of the Great Orme and Little Orme.  

The name Great Orme, derives from an Old Norse word meaning ‘sea serpent’.  The Orme is home to around 200 Kashmiri goats, who have roamed the headland since the 19th century. Kendrick’s cave on the Orme was a site of extraordinary archaeology finds, a decorated horse jaw, and flint tool. Copper mining on the Great Orme began around 4000 years ago, whilst the site was abandoned during the bronze age, there is evidence to suggest the site was opened again during the roman period. The Orme is protected as a special area of conservation, a heritage coast and a site of special scientific interest. 

The little orme (Angel Bay) is popular with marine wildlife including seals.  A great place for walks and picnics, dogs are allowed. The Promenade at Llandudno is almost two miles long, off the promenade you have Llandudno pier, built in 1884 and home to Llandudno’s famous Punch and Judy show. 

Happy Valley public park was donated to the town of Llandudno by Lord Mostyn in 1887 as a celebration of Queen Victoria’s golden jubilee.  Above happy valley is Pen Y Dinas, the site of an Iron Age fill fort. 

The town also has two beaches, the North Shore which is great for sand castles, paddling and a stroll to the Pier and the West Shore with its stunning views of Anglesey and Snowdonia and one of the world’s best kite surfing spots.
