|Beautiful sun drehched lawned gardens - The Royal Hotel in Llandudno North Wales is unique as this hotel boasts beautiful secluded and private lawned gardens where guests may relax and unwind. The garden is South West facing and so benefits from maximum sunshine.|
|Great Orme Tramway - The Great Orme Tramway was first built over 100 years ago as a way to travel to the summit of the Great Orme.
Originally the tramway only ran to what is today called the half-way station with the upper section being constructed some years later.
The lower section of the journey is very steep and offers spectacular views of Llandudno's north shore and town centre.
At the half-way station visitors change trams and then journey on the somewhat less steep second leg to the summit. Whilst the second leg does not offer the same stunning views and the lower section it does allow you to take in some of the natural beauty of the Great Orme as well as passing the Great Orme Copper Mines.
Once at the summit you disembark and can explore the Summit Complex which offers a children's playground, refreshments, a pub, and a gift shop. You can also take a look at some of the wildlife that lives on and around the Great Orme and learn about the its history and how it was formed.
One good idea that is often used by visitors is to purchase just a single ticket for the tram journey and then a take the Great Orme Cable Car back down. Of course you can do the journey the other way round if you prefer. If your first leg is on the tram its always worthwhile checking if the cable car is running however you can always purchase another single at the summit for the trip back down.|
|Llandudno Cable Car - Llandudno's cable car is the perfect way to reach the Great Orme's summit. The ride starts close to the base of the Great Orme in Happy Valley which is easily reached on foot or by car and is just a short distance from the promenade.
Visitors can purchase a single ticket to the summit complex or a return ticket for the ride back down. A good combination is to ride the Great Orme Tram on one leg of the journey and the cable car on the other.
The cable car journey is the longest cable car ride in Great Britain and rises to 615ft at the Great Orme's summit and along the way offers stunning views of Llandudno and the north Wales coastline.
For the photo conscious amongst you make sure your camera is at the ready for the lower part of the journey as this offers the best views of Llandudno Pier , Happy Valley , the town centre, and the Ski Slope.|
|Llandudno Pier - Llandudno Pier stretches out from the north shore into the Irish Sea for over 2295ft and is the longest pier in Wales and the fifth longest pier in the United Kingdom.
The pier was originally opened in 1858 and was intended for use as a major port between Wales and Ireland. Unfortunately the pier was badly damaged in a great storm in 1859 and had to be rebuilt. The pier was opened to the public in 1877 and a landwards extension was added in 1884 which was later rebuilt in concrete and steel in 1969.
The pier is a popular attraction for visitors with its many small shops and fun rides not to mention the stunning views it offers of the Great Orme and Llandudno Bay. For those willing to make the walk there is the Pier Pavillion at the end of the pier along with a landing stage for boat trips.
The pier is a popular location for fishing.|
|Ski Llandudno - Llandudno's Dry Ski Slope is located on the Great Orme and is best reached by car by travelling towards to pier and then through Happy Valley .
The ski slope offers a variety of activities to keep you entertained including the 200 metre main slope, a smaller training slope for the less experienced, a 750 metre toboggan ride for all the family, and a relaxing alpine bar and restaurant when you want to take a breather.
The ski slope is open all year round from 10am to 10pm and is open to both members and non-members. Non members must be qualified skiers or participate in the training sessions which start from just £17 for adults and £13 for juniors.
