Llandudno is nestled between the Great Orme and Little Orme headlands.
The town dates back to 1854, when prominent landowner Edward Mostyn set out in the development and planning of the town. With the help of architect Owen Williams, Mostyn totally transformed the land of this former mining and fishing community and designed the village as a seaside resort for rich Victorian vacationers.
The sumptuous styling and full blown Victorian splendour remain today. Visitors come to Llandudno to enjoy picturesque surroundings, local attractions, and a relaxing atmosphere. The town is currently home to the United Kingdom's longest cable car, a dry ski slope with tobogan run and an exceptional regional theatre and conference centre, Venue Cymru.
Llandudno is also renowned for being the site where Lewis Carroll worked for Henry George Liddell. Liddell's daughter, Alice, later became Carroll's wife and was the inspiration for "Alice in Wonderland."
Llandudno now also boasts an indoor shopping experience in the form of the Victoria Centre as well as a shoppers' paradise in the form of the new "Parc Llandudno", which boasts large department stores and other well known retail outlets.
Llandudno is a fascinating seaside town, which has successfully blended culture and history with the conveniences and entertainment opportunities of a modern seaside resort.
