Conwy & Llandudno Tours with Great British Trips

Introducing Conwy & Llandudno


Victorian Buildings dominate the mile long bay and has enabled Llandudno to retain the 19th century ambience which made it the place to stay for Victorians and European royalty alike, as they enjoyed shopping along wrought iron and glass verandas of Mostyn Street that still feature today. For kids the sandy beach could provide the highlight; others will prefer the 125 year old pier with its plethora of shops, cafes, bars and attractions to suit all tastes; but without doubt, everyone will enjoy the cable-driven tramway to the headland known as the Great Orme with stunning views of the bay below. History lovers will find Great Orme's ancient church and ancient copper mines of great interest, and culture vultures will enjoy the museums and Venue Cymru to take in ballet, comedy or a musical.
