The town of Llandudno is a popular seaside resort found in the Conwy County Borough, Wales. Known as the Queen of the Welsh Resorts, Llandudno is now the largest seaside resort in Wales and features a number of fantastic attractions.
Amongst these is Llandudno Bay and the North Shore, a wide sweep of sand, shingle and rock extending over two miles and perfect for summer activities. For most of the distance on the North Shore there is a wide Victorian promenade.
Near the centre of the bay is the North Wales Theatre home to a number of interesting productions. Llandudno Pier, also found within the town, is an award-winning pier on the North Shore and was built in 1878 with a position as a Grade II listed building. The town is easily accessed by public transport and the A470 road that joins with the A55.
