Escorted Rail Tours to Llandudno
By the sea and Snowdonia National Park
Often referred to as "the Queen of Welsh resorts", Llandudno
lies on Wales' rugged north coast, overlooked by the impressive
Great Orme peninsula, while the beautiful sweep of sand curves
round to Little Orme, itself very pretty. This beautifully
preserved Victorian seaside town is also surrounded by the stunning
natural wonder of Snowdonia National Park.
As well as being ideally located for exploration of northern
Wales, Llandudno itself is home to a number of charming
attractions. Of course Llandudno also boasts a fantastic beach,
ideal for strolling or simply relaxing, as well as a pier with its
traditional seaside attractions.
If you're feeling more energetic, there are numerous
options available to you. One of the most popular is the Great Orme
Tramway, which takes you up from Llandudno and through a
country park to the summit in wonderfully preserved tram cars. From
the halfway tram station you can visit the Bronze Age copper mines,
thought to be the largest pre-historic mine in the world. From the
summit of Great Orme, you can take in the marvellous views - on a
clear day you can see as far as the Isle of Man.
