The area

Area highlights


Stroll a pier

It might take a while, mind. At 695 metres, or 2,295 feet in old money, Llandudno Pier is the longest in Wales.

Hear the world

Every July the llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod welcomes 50,000 visitors and 5,000 musicians from across the globe.

Enter a castle

Conwy Castle is a World Heritage Site. So UNESCO thinks it's "of outstanding universal value to all humanity". Couldn't have put it better ourselves.

Walk this way

Stroll beside the River Alyn through the wooded valley with limestone cliffs at Loggerheads Country Park. Then recharge with a light bite of local produce at Caffi Florence.

Ride a cable car

There are three places where cable cars run on the streets. San Francisco, Lisbon and - Llandudno. A ride on the Great Orme Tramway will save you a very long journey.

Visit the ladies

The so-called Ladies of Llangollen set Regency tongues wagging when they ran away together. See what all the fuss was about at their Plas Newydd home.

Befriend a penguin

At Colwyn Bay's Welsh Mountain Zoo, you don't just get to see endangered snow leopards or Sumatran tigers. you can watch a penguin parade and encounter a chimp.

Get arty

Ruthin Craft Centre is the finest applied arts gallery in Wales. And this £4 million building, which echoes the shape of the surrounding hills, is a work of art in itself.

Smell the flowers

Bodnant Garden is famous around the world. And it has the country’s tallest California redwood. So mind you don’t get a stiff neck.

See famous faces

Bodelwyddan Castle isn’t really a castle at all. It’s an extravagant Victorian mansion. And it’s the Welsh outpost of the National Portrait Gallery.
