About Llandudno

Wales' biggest seaside resort, Llandudno is the perfect place to go for a traditional British seaside family holiday or a quirky romantic getaway. The town straddles a peninsula with long beaches on either side and an enormous (and romantic) seaside promenade, while the 19th century pier, lined with shops and arcade games, is the epitome of a quintessential British seaside resort. Developed as an upmarket holiday town for Victorians, it still retains its authentic 19th century grandeur, and boasts a number of fascinating museums, art galleries and prehistoric sites. Conveniently nestled just beside the near-wilderness of Snowdonia and the Great Orme it is also a perfect base for hikers and bikers. The best places to stay in Llandudno are all small boutiques that offer intimacy and authenticity above all else.
