2017 is Wales’ the ‘Year of Legends’ – and there’s a lot celebrate, especially in this part of the world. Llandudno and the Best of North Wales is gearing up for a busy time.
We’re giving you the chance to win a luxury weekend break for two in Conwy County, with a two-night dinner, bed and breakfast stay in a 4 Star Hotel and attraction tickets!
Llandudno is the undisputed, unblemished ‘queen’ of Welsh resorts which conjures up a dreamy, paintbox vision of Victoriana. In terms of that classic seaside experience, what can be more legendary than a stroll to the end of its pristine pier, the longest in Wales?
The great outdoors also beckon. On Llandudno’s doorstep there are world-class castles, historic houses and gardens, and rugged highlands legendary for their outdoor activities. Go walking from Betws-y-Coed. Climb mountains from Capel Curig. Explore the moors and lakes of Mynydd Hiraethog.
Tales of the past come alive at Conwy Castle, a World Heritage Site with a compellingly authentic, brooding presence. Conwy itself, tightly packed within its 13th-century walls, is Wales’ ultimate medieval town.
