Llandudno shoreLlandudno is set between two headlands: the Irish Sea on one side and the River Conwy on the other. These headlands provide two shores (the North Shore and West Shore) and provide the town with its unique appeal. The golden sandy beach at North Shore is a magnificent crescent shape, and excellent for sandcastles, paddling and picnics! The curved esplanade also boasts an impressive Victorian pier, stretching 376m out into the sea it is the longest pier in Wales, and is considered one of Britian’s finest surviving piers. Another outstanding feature is that the bay is flanked by Great Ormes Head and Little Orme, with Llandudno and its elegant promenade lying protected between the headlands. You have several choices to visit the Great Orme’s summit (207m). Drive up via the road, take the Great Orme Tramway (C.1902) or glide up on
the UK’s longest aerial cable car. Llandudno has a long heritage. Many ancient age relics have been found; with copper being mined from the Bronze Age. There is evidence that the Great Orme copper mine was used by the Romans, but much of the ore was exhausted in the Industrial Revolution.
