Reasons for trip

We spent three nights here and could easily have stayed for longer. It has everything you could want from a seaside resort – the sea and pier, big old hotels with all facilities, a great range of small shops as well as the big stores, theatre and live music (including regular concerts by visiting Welsh Male Voice Choirs). Always worth visiting the local museum, we found some fascinating displays about its ancient history and geological formation with its landmark Great Orme – go up on the tram and come down on the cable car to really get a feel for the size of the place.

We tried several restaurants including the Indian restaurant opposite Wetherspoon’s Palladium, the Queen Victoria pub serving good quality pub food, and the New Mediterranean Restaurant in Mostyn Street (see review). Even better, if you have a Welsh travel pass, this is the perfect location for hopping on a bus (free) towards Chester along the north coast, Anglesey along to the west, and Blaenau Ffestiniog to the south (and the zip wire experience!). Trains are easy too as it is the direct line from Shrewsbury or Crewe (via Llandudno Junction) so basically an easy option whichever transport type you use. Oh yes, and as the hometown of Lewis Carroll and Alice in Wonderland, you will meet the main characters, including the Mad Hatter and the White Rabbit, as you stroll around the town. Well worth a visit.
