A firm favourite we cant wait to get back to Llandudno.
Llandudno is Waless largest resort, 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.
The Victorian pleasure pier in Llandudno is the longest in all of Wales, reaching 700 meters out in the bay, and offering some amazing views back towards the promenade not at least by sunset. It was opened back in 1877 and has since been an icon for this popular seaside resort.
The Great Orme is the name of Llandudnos local mountain (207 meters high), that can be conquered by foot or with the charming and historic Great Orme Tramway, which will take you to the station near the top in two steps (by a change half way). It opened back in 1902 and the lower sections tram-system is very unique and most similar to those found in Lisbon in Portugal.
The Great Orme headland is home to some wonderful nature and the views from up there are worth the visit.
Our excursions will include the beautiful Portmeirion, where you can learn the history of the village and the sub- tropical gardens it is set in. Inspired by the multicoloured facades of Portofino in Italy, this Welsh village is more than just a pretty picture.
Portmeirion village, located just outside the Snowdonia National Park boundaries in North Wales, looks something out of a fairy tale. Portmeirion village is the design folly of its founder, the architect Clough Williams-Ellis. His creative vision for a private peninsula on the Snowdonia coast, demonstrating how architecture and nature can live together, finds a physical manifestation in Portmeirion village. Clough acquired the wilderness site in 1925 and dedicated his life to building an Italianate village, drawing heavily on the coloured facades of Portofino for inspiration. The intriguing design of this pretty little village means Portmeirion has regularly appeared on film and TV from Cold Feet to the Inn of the Sixth Happiness. It's best known for cult television series, The Prisoner, starring the actor Patrick McGoohan.

In a nutshell. Everyone loves Llandudno. Who could possibly argue with that while strolling along Llandudno's elegant promenade past pastel-coloured hotels and impeccably authentic seafront architecture just like Victorians did? All that's needed to complete the picture is a frilly parasol (for the ladies) and straw boater (for the gentlemen).
We bid farewell to our favourite Welsh resort as we make our journey back home. With planned lunch stop along the route.B, D
