Wales is always a popular place to go on holiday in the UK, and Llandudno, in the Conwy County Borough, is a great example of a seaside town that attracts many visitors every year. Penrhyn Bay and Penrhynside are both located nearby and are major tourist attractions in the region. The town is often referred to as the Queen of the Welsh Resorts, and it lays claim to being the largest seaside resort town in the whole of Wales.
Most of the major attractions in the town are centred around the seafront, with beaches such as Llandudno Bay and the North Shore close nearby. The Pier was built back in 1878 and is now protected by its Grade II listed building status. West Shore is a peaceful beach that is perfect for families to visit, and Mostyn Street offers the main shopping area in the town.
There is a small football club and a small cricket club in the town, however, sports fans may prefer to travel to nearby Colwyn Bay or to Wrexham, which is about 30 miles away, to catch a more serious game of football. Cardiff boasts the largest football club in Wales and is around 160 miles from here.
This stunning promenade town sits on the Great Orme limestone peninsula in North Wales. In the 19th century the town was home to many copper mines and a thriving fishing industry, with other locals turning to agriculture to make a living. Nowadays, much of the local industry relies on tourism and there are hundreds of top places to stay and around in Llandudno to suit every budget and taste.
