Llandudno 5 Day Festive - Hydro Hotel
- Duration: 5 days
- Board Basis: Half Board
- Tour Ref: D2TALF5350XE
- Travel Type: Coach
Situated on its own peninsula between the Great Orme and Little Orme Heads, Llandudno boasts two superb beaches. The shingly North Shore (outside our hotel) is the busier of the two with its Victorian Pier, boat trips, donkey rides, Punch and Judy shows and much more. The sandy west shore is quieter with miles of sands and panoramic views of the Snowdonia mountain range in the distance. Llandudno is a highly attractive resort with its magnificent crescent of hotels, broad tree-lined streets and elegant shops all combining to produce a unique atmosphere. There are two golf courses. A tramway and cable car both offer a route to the summit of the Great Orme (which also boasts a superb dry ski slope - one of the best in Britain). There is plenty to do both by day and by night and you are sure never to have a dull moment at what many would claim to be the most complete of all British holiday resorts.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
