Llandudno – Top UK DestinationMay 3, 2012
Jubilant Llandudno – Voted one of the UK’s top ten resorts by TripAdvisor
Fondly regarded as the “Queen of the Welsh resorts”, North Wales’ Llandudno has been voted one of the top 10 UK holiday resorts in TripAdvisor’s 2012 Travellers’ Choice Awards announced today.
Perfectly placed on the unspoilt North Wales coast, the town has a pristine Blue Flag beach and is the ideal destination for a nostalgic family break with Punch and Judy shows, donkey rides on the beach, sand castle building and the longest pier in Wales. Llandudno was also the favourite holiday destination of Alice Liddell who inspired Lewis Carroll’s famous Alice books, and first visited Llandudno when she was eight. More recently, Price William and Katherine Middleton have been spotted enjoying evenings out there.
The 870-mile-long Wales Coast Path opens this weekend (5 May), making Wales the first country to have a continuous trail all the way around its coast. Nearby Bodnant Garden also boats one of the world’s most impressive laburnum arches which is 55 metres long and flowers in late May.
