Here at the Elm Tree Hotel, we know that many of our valued guests and visitors to the area can’t wait to come back and enjoy it all when it is safe to do so. We thought we’d do a round up of how you could spend a perfect couple of days in Llandudno and the surrounding area after lockdown in the UK has ended.
The longest pier in Wales, reaching 700 meters out into the bay, offers some of the best views back towards the Victorian promenade – not at least during the daily sunset. Opened back in 1877, it has been an iconic monument of Llandudno ever since. Free to walk along, you’ll find a nice mixture of traditional style stalls, shops and entertainment. There are plenty of spots to stop and enjoy the scenery and rest your legs with an ice cream – but do watch out for the brave seagulls that call Llandudno their home!
The Great Orme
This large headland is the local pride and joy – which can be conquered by foot, bicycle or on the charming and historic Great Orme Tramway which will take you to the top with ease. The Great Orme is home to some wonderful local nature and the views from the top are absolutely worth the visit. At the summit there is a restaurant so you can grab a quick bite before making your way back down – but you shouldn’t miss the rare Bronze Age Mines that were discovered here, and can now be explored safely for a small fee.
Conwy Town & Castle
Strangely, one of the biggest attractions of the area isn’t located in Llandudno, but a short drive away instead. The nearby town of Conwy should be explored if you have the time to spare, home to the magnificent Conwy Castle which is one of the best castles in Wales and is a protected UNESCO world heritage site. The views from the top of the towers are simply stunning – on a clear day you can see right across to Deganwy, over the estuary and the town of Conwy itself.
