Few things say ‘seaside holiday’ quite like a stroll along the pier, and Llandudno Pier is a real gem! With its Grade II listed status, it’s a traditional seaside pier dating from the late 1800s with an array of shops, cafes, bars and attractions – offering fun for all the family!

 

At the pier head, there’s a bar where you can enjoy a drink, and a separate café for a tasty meal, an ice cream or a tempting afternoon cake. If you fancy catching your own supper there’s a fishing platform. Day fishing permits, rod and tackle hire, bait and equipment are available at the fishing tackle shop located at the rear entrance of the Pier (on Happy Valley Road).

 

Llandudno Cable Car

 

Enjoy a ride on the Llandudno Cable Car during your visit to the beautiful resort. Opened on 30 June 1969 as the longest passenger cable car system in Britain, this unique experience continues to be one of town’s most popular attractions. As the Llandudno Cable Cars glide silently from Happy Valley to the summit of the Great Orme, 679 feet up, you can take in the jaw-dropping panoramic views of the Bay of Llandudno, the Little Orme, the Conwy Estuary and miles out over the Iris Sea. And then look down on the beautiful gardens of Happy Valley or glimpse the action at the Llandudno Ski & Snowboard Centre. The distance to the summit is just over a mile and the leisurely journey takes about nine minutes on an endless steel rope.

Today the castle is one of the best preserved castles in the whole of North Wales.

Caernarfon Castle

 

A brute of a fortress. Caernarfon Castle’s pumped-up appearance is unashamedly muscle-bound and intimidating. Picking a fight with this massive structure would have been a daunting prospect. By throwing his weight around in stone, King Edward I created what is surely one of the most impressive of Wales’s castles. Worthy of World Heritage status no less!

Surf Snowdonia

 

Picture this. A perfect lozenge-shaped fresh-water lagoon, roughly the size of six football pitches, set in the lush, green Conwy Valley in the lee of the Snowdonia mountains. Breathe it in. It’s clean, it’s fresh, it’s wild and it’s beautiful.

 

Now add something entirely unexpected. A powerful two-metre wave that rises at the centre of the lagoon, peels perfectly for more than 150 metres, and dissipates softly as it hits the shore.
