|Llandudno is Wales's largest holiday resort and its legacy as a popular Victorian Holiday destination is still more than evident today. It has a magnificent promenade lined with grand elegant hotels, and a classically Victorian Pier.|
Situated in Llandudno bay,
there are two beaches; the popular North
Shore, and the quieter West Shore which is
backed by sand dunes. At one end of the bay
lies the famous "Great Orme", an enormous
towering limestone rock.
Views from the top are truly breathtaking. You can gain access to the top by either the tramway, or cable car. For a quicker route down, why not try the dry ski slope! It is the longest artificial ski slope in Britain and each year plays host to the Artificial Ski Championships.
The Orme is also home to an ancient network of copper mines dating back to the Bronze Age. First discovered by "The Great Orme Exploration Society", they were opened to the public in 1991 by "Great Orme Mines". From the visitor centre you can actually go on an underground visit where you can watch archaeologists at work.
