Events in Llandudno

There is so much to do and such a busy calendar all year round in Llandudno, the Premier North Wales holiday resort and part of Conwy County Borough in the United Kingdom. This is an independent website dedicated to the promotion of my hometown and its natural and traditional attractions.

Llandudno lies between two notable carboniferous headlands, the Great Orme and the Little Orme (both within the Conwy County Borough), with the Irish Sea on one side and the estuary of the River Conwy on the other. It is these headlands and the two waterfronts, the North Shore and the West Shore, that give the tourist resort of Llandudno its special appeal.

Traditional seaside entertainment

Here Punch and Judy still entertain the children in the traditional manner, just as they have always done. ‘Professor’ Codman brought Punch to Llandudno in 1860 and the Codman family still run the puppet show daily during the summer on the wide promenade near the pier at the foot of the Great Orme.

Donkey and Pony Rides have been popular on Llandudno’s sandy beach for over 125 years and continue to appeal to the children of all ages. They were introduced by Elizabeth Hughes (the Donkey Lady) and her family continue the tradition with others to the present day. You can even go horse riding in the area.

At Llandudno there are usually donkey rides available on both of the town’s immaculate beaches, on sunny summer days, subject to the tide tables.

Llandudno Town Trail

Llandudno is proud of its carefully planned Victorian town centre with its wide streets and attractive sea front including its broad uncluttered promenade and invites visitors to take the town trail, which is a carefully planned walk round Llandudno's interesting streets. You are welcome to follow the walk on the internet, just click on the picture to the right.

Llandudno has two great beaches, the north shore with its many hotels (a few seen here) and its wide promenade, and the west shore (see below) with fewer hotels and a quiet relaxed environment.

Much more than just a train ride

As well as your Mountain Top Adventure on Britain’s highest rack railway, there is so much more to see and do at Snowdon Mountain Railway. Browse through the range of quality gifts, souvenirs and clothing on sale at the Station Gift Shop and in the new Summit Visitor Centre.
