List of attractions in Llandudno

Llandudno has survived the upheaval in British tourism. With the advent of cheap flights many of the traditional British seaside resorts have lost out in the holiday makers rush to the mediterranean.Golf on the OrmeBut the local authority with support from hoteliers in Llandudno have always been strict in retaining the Victorian feel to the town. Don't even think about putting an ice cream kiosk on the promenade or a fish and chip shop on the sea front ! There is always controversy whenever anything new is proposed, and they could leave themselves open to being called old fuddy duddies, but time seems to have proved them right. Whereas many resorts are in decline Llandudno is still preening herself as the "Queen of Welsh Resorts". But don't get me wrong there is still plenty to do in Llandudno. Indeed you could spend the holiday on the Great Orme and in the Great Orme Country Park alone, and not run out of things to do. There is golf, a Victorian Tramway, some of the best views in the United Kingdom, a country park and nature trails with a fine visitor centre, the world class Bronze Age Mines, Happy Valley, dry slope skiing and toboganning, to name but a few.
Back down into the town itself there is the 1500 seat North Wales Theatre which since its spectacular Royal Gala opening has established itself as one of the UK's leading receiving theatres. From rock and pop, comedy, opera, orchestral and choral music, ballet, West End shows to children's shows and pantomime. Blood Brothers, Jesus Christ Superstar, Willie Nelson, Chicago, Don Mclean, Russian National Ballet, Welsh National Opera.. virtually every form of live performance.
Or visit a genuine working farm where the countryside meets the sea in Llandudno at Bodafon Farm Park. See rare farm breeds, and extensive aviaries, or stroll along the farm heritage trail. Spend a day or just a few hours.
Punch and Judy on the promenade ..thats the way to do it.Llandudno has always been known for its connection to Alice in Wonderland and today you are able to  see the Wonderland story come to life in colourful, life size displays at the Alice in Wonderland Centre. Professor Codman's original Punch and Judy on the promenade close to the Pier is a firm favourite with the children, and the Pier nearby has a fun fair, amusement arcades, and of course is a great place to try your hand at catching Bass, or to just take a stroll.
Discover Llandudno's long and fascinating history in a visit to the Llandudno Museum. Take a trip back in time and find about the history of the Copper Mines, or visit an old Welsh Kitchen with traditional furniture, pots and pans. The Home Front Experience takes you back 60 years to when Britain was at war with Germany and Japan. Take a tour and discover the sights and sounds of life during the second world war.
If shopping is your thing there are many high street shops to choose from and the Canolfan Victorian Shopping Centre in the heart of the resort has a unique Victorian theme, which has been designed to compliment the architecture of Llandudno.
