Llandudno is famed as being the `Queen of the Welsh Resorts' and is now the largest seaside resort in Wales, lying on a flat isthmus of sand between the Welsh mainland and the Great Orme. The town, renowned for its beaches and piers, has changed a lot over the years, with a lot of development along the seafront. From its Victorian architecture to its sweeping sand and shingle beaches, Llandudno has long been a favourite destination for holidaymakers.
Llandudno History Tour takes us on a tour of this seaside town, explaining the history behind its well-known landmarks and revealing the former uses of some of Llandudno's finest buildings.
