Christmas In Llandudno
2018 - Risboro - 5 Days (DUD0060)
Llandudno is a coastal town in North Wales. It’s known for North Shore Beach and 19th-century Llandudno Pier, with it's shops and games arcades. Northwest of town, the cliffs of Great Orme headland jut into the sea. Llandudno is without doubt the ‘Queen of Welsh Resorts’. The long, crescent-shaped promenade and sweeping sands, make it a perfect holiday destination.
We stay at the lovely Risboro Hotel which whilst ideally located in the heart of Llandudno, is also well known for its excellent evening entertainment with which to relax after a full day of touring...and on this tour that is what you can enjoy! We also have a fabulous programme arranged for you taking in some of the best attractions that North Wales has to offer!
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.

Wedged between the gleaming Menai Strait and Snowdonia's deep-purple hills, Caernarfon's main claim to fame is its magnificent castle, one of the finest and doughtiest of Edward I's martial masterpieces. Given the town's crucial historical importance (it's been a key strategic site since the Roman occupation), its proximity to Snowdonia and its reputation as a centre of Welsh culture (it has a percentage of native speakers as high as anywhere), it's a winningly untouristy destination. It has an air of undemonstrative charm and there's a tangible sense of history in the streets around the castle, especially Palace St, Castle Sq and Hole in the Wall St. Within the cobbled lanes of the old walled town are some fine Georgian buildings, and the waterfront is marching inevitably towards gentrification.
Porthmadog is also a bona fide paradise for railway buffs. There are 'little trains' all over Wales, a legacy of Victorian industry, but Porthmadog is triply blessed: it forms the southern terminus for two of Wales’ finest narrow-gauge train journeys and has a third steam-train line connected to a rail-heritage centre.
This part of Wales really packs it in, from rugged mountain trails to coastal paths, old industrial sites and heritage train lines. The gem in this diadem is Snowdonia National Park, where the mightiest peaks south of Scotland scrape glowering skies. With such a formidable mountain shield, it's little wonder that the northwestern county of Gwynedd has held tightly to Cymraeg language and culture.
