Llandudno’s Pier is the longest in Wales so a stroll along it is almost obligatory on a visit to the town. With amusements, ice cream sellers and shops as well as magnificent views, it’s a lovely way to while away an hour or two. The pier stretches out from Llandudno’s North Beach, a sand and shingle expanse backed by a promenade of Victorian buildings. It’s a great place for paddling, swimming and sandcastle building. At either end of the beach are the twin headlands of Great and Little Orme. Great Orme is home to Great Orme Country Park, a lovely place for a walk with stunning views out to sea from its 679-foot summit. If you don’t fancy the walk there’s a scenic cable car ride that’s been whisking visitors up to the top since 1969. Further out of town you can visit the the Welsh Mountain Zoo in nearby Colwyn Bay or the lovely National Trust Bodnant Gardens. There’s plenty of outdoor fun in Snowdonia National Park and the gateway town of Betws-y-Coed is just 19 miles from Llandudno and a great place to find out about the area. Walking, climbing, zip-lining, mountain-biking and more are all easy to find and there are plenty of tourist attractions too.
Whether it's hiking to the top of the Great Orme or eating an ice cream on the old pier, the Victorian seaside resort of Llandudno is an ideal place to visit on any North Wales camping holiday.
