Llandudno's beautiful Beaches
Llandudno has not just one but two beautiful beaches and two golf courses within the town. The main beach is located close to the town centre, on Llandudno's North Shore, with its long curving promenade and victorian buildings. The North Shore beach offers spectacular views of Llandudno Bay and the two Ormes, the Great Orme and Little Orme and Llandudno's Victorian Pier jutts majestically out into the Irish Sea. The second beach is less well known and is called the West Shore and faces towards Snowdonia and Anglesey with its seemingly endless sand and dunes. Visitors to the West Shore get spectacular views of the Conwy estuary and Snowdonia mountains as well as looking across the bay towards Isle of Anglesey and Puffin Island.
Llandudno, a perfect venue for Golf
For the golf minded Llandudno has two golf courses located close to each other to the south of the town. Both the Maesdu Golf and North Wales Golf courses are very popular with both locals and visitors alike and are of course granted the stunning scenery of views of Snowdonia, Anglesey, and the Great Orme.
Llandudno's Alice in Wonderland Connections
It is widely believed that Lewis Carroll's book Alice in Wonderland was based on the Liddell family that spent many holidays within the region and owned a house on the West Shore for a number of years. There is a statue of the White Rabbit on the West Shore dedicated to the author and The Alice in Wonderland museum close to the centre of the town that explores the themes of the books.
It would appear almost certain that Lewis Carroll himself never came to Llandudno however there do appear to be links between the books and the town and the Carroll must certainly have visited his birthplace in Cheshire and been familiar with north Wales.
