More info: Llandudno is the largest resort in Wales and is uniquely situated between the Great Orme and Little Orme with two award-winning beaches, Llandudno North Shore Beach and the quieter, West Shore Beach.

Llandudno's principal beach is the North Shore Beach which is a sheltered beach with a long Victorian pier and a wide promenade set against the Great Orme headland. Llandudno Pier was built in 1878 and it is a Grade II listed building. This traditional resort offers donkey rides, ice creams and live music from the bandstand. In the summer, Professor Codman's Punch and Judy show (established in 1860) can be found on the promenade near the entrance to the pier.

Venue Cymru, is located near the centre of the promenade on Penrhyn Crescent. It is noted for its productions of opera, orchestral concerts, ballet, musical theatre, drama, circus, ice shows and pantomimes.

Opposite the North Parade is the Llandudno Land Train which has a tour going around the Great Orme and another shorter one to West Shore Beach.

The Great Orme is home to several large herds of wild Kashmiri goats originally descended from a pair given by Queen Victoria to Lord Mostyn. The summit of the Great Orme stands at 679 feet (207 m).
