The trip up the Great Orme is lovely. You have the chance to go by cable car, tram or walk of course. On a clear day the views are wonderful. walking on the Great Orme is marvellous with lovely views over to Conwy and the great castle and out to sea.
You can always thake the cable car
Cable cars to the top of the Orme as well. I would say very expensive for what they are and much more expensive than similar rides in other countries that I have tried, quicker than the tram and walking though
Lizzie feeding carrots to a Shire Horse. These horses are really beautiful & awesome when you get up close (I think you need a pilot's license to ride them, they're so high!!!).
The farm also has a wide variety of wildlife, but my favourites are the horses & Highland cattle.
The farm has a good variety of animals, from horses, lama`s, deer, owl`s, goats, etc & is great for children to visit.
The farm also has a cafe & has a function room which is great for parties.
A Scouse Retirement Village
Llandudno was built as a resort for upper class Victorians over a hundred years ago. Now it's filled with retirees, scouse overflow, daytrippers and weekenders - all from across the border in England. I didn't hear a Welsh voice until I escaped to nearby Conwy.
The pier sums the place up. Gaudy fairground rides, bingo halls, greasy spoon cafes, guess your weight machines, tat shops and loudspeakers searing Roger Miller's King of the Road onto your eardrums. But it still retains a certain stately charm.
It was once, after all, a getaway for privileged Victorians - a manufactured resort constructed on one of Britain's most beautiful stretches of coast. You can still see that history, like the old music hall that is now a franchise pub cum nursing home.
The town arcs elegantly around Ormes Bay - a sea wall of pristine guesthouses in a kaleidoscope of washed out pastel shades. Sunburned pensioners totter along the wide promenade looking for bench to rest on, each emblazened with the name of another, departed, elder.
A few desperate sun lovers try to find a patch of soft sand amid the rough shingle beach. Well fed seagulls circle the promenade seeking out the old and the vulnerable, snatching ice cream from children's mouths with their greedy beaks.
And a blue flag flies proudly above it all, because after all, this is one of Britain's cleanest beaches. The town is well looked after, monied, and clean. There's no trouble. It's a little downmarket, but people are genuine and decent.
There's great food to be had too. And some incredible history beyond the Victorian heritage. Up above the town, on Great Orme, lies thousands of years of history that is only just being discovered, a past that people are beginning to believe had an impact way beyond the shores of Britain.
And as a base for visiting the surrounding countryside and towns of North Wales, you can't go far wrong. Plenty of good accommodation, great transport links, and easy access from many major people centres in the Midlands and the North.
And you can't beat the setting. The area is stunning.
