Llandudno and The Great Orme

Comments 5 Standard

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.
