Since I revisited Conwy, it was only right I visited Llandudno again, especially since there so close by. ( You can read more about my first visit here). Its only a 13-minute car drive away, 22-minute train ride away, or you could catch the tour bus, like I did. If your visiting one consider visiting the other as they are both worth the small journey.
Like Conwy, the first time I visited I didn’t have enough time to explore properly, so this time I got to enjoy it alot more.
The real wonderland of Alice
Llandudno is the place where the real Alice (Alice Liddell) used to holiday. The Alice who Lewis Carroll based his famous book Alice in Wonderland on.
There are many features of the book all around. The Alice in wonderland trails map and souvenir can be purchased at the tourist centre. I never did this, however I did visit Happy Valley, which has a few of the featured trails.
This place took me right back to my childhood years. So Cute!
I couldn’t help but think, how my eight year old self would have loved to have explored the trail. I loved the story as a child.
Thank you for visiting my blog today, stay tuned for more.
Llandudno is another place we stopped off whilst visiting the picturesque North Wales. Located between Bangor and Chester and is one of the UK’s most popular holiday destinations.
Llandudno is an old Victorian-era seaside resort with a 19th century pier and is said to be once an old favourite of queen Victoria. Along the pier you’ll find a number of shops, games arcades and not forgetting the wonderful views.
You can take a relaxing walk all the way to the end of this pier, the views are incredible!
The Great Orme
Llandudno is also home to the Great Orme (Y Gogarth in welsh)
The great orme is a huge chunk of limestone headland and is one of Llandudno favourite places for tourism.
The Great Orme has it’s own country park that can be accessed by cable car, tramway, by car or if your fit enough by taking the hike up.
No matter what way you choose, you will not be disappointed with the beautiful views, wildlife, fascinating geology, archaeology and history.
Just opposite of where I took this shot is a church and graveyard named after it’s founder St.Tudno, one of the seven son’s of king Seithenyn. It was built in the 12th century on the Christian site that dates right back to the 6th century.
If you are thinking of visiting Llandudno, don’t miss out the opportunity to see this Great little place.
Thanks for reading and a happy New year to you all! And a huge thank you for your continued support! It’s very much appreciated xx
