- Conwy - A Welsh Holiday Resort by Simon Haughtone
Llandudno - Conwy - is one of the
major holiday resorts of Wales. It owes its well planned streets and wide
promenade to Edward Mostyn and Owain Williams, who in the mid nineteenth
century laid out a new town on former marshland below the Great Orme.
Llandudno provides not one beach
but two. On the side of the headland facing Conwy is West Shore, with a
terraced sea wall and a sand and shingle beach, backed by sand dunes. Bathing
is safe at high water, but the sea recedes a long way out at low tide,
and venturing too far out on the sand could mean being cut off by rising
water. West Shore provides a children's playground and paddling pool as
well as a putting green.
On the opposite side of the Great
Orme is the North Shore, a two mile sweep of beach bordered by a promenade,
with the pier at the western end and Little Ormes Head at the eastern end.
Here shingle takes over from sand. Water skiing, sailing, and fishing trips
are available from the jetty.
Llandudno is a child of the railway
age. In 1850 the population was around one thousand, but by the time the
branch line opened in 1858 the new town was being developed with wide streets,
large houses, and the promenade. The completion of the pier with its ornate
pavilions brought still more visitors by paddle steamer from Merseyside.
Llandudno has never lost its elegance, and today's pavement cafes give
it an almost continental feel. Its major attractions are still the beaches
that now have traditional amusements such as donkey rides and Punch and
The town's local history museum covers
the area's history from Bronze Age to Roman times, while the Alice in Wonderland
Visitor Centre explains the town's connection with the writer Lewis Carroll.
