The Promenade wraps along the northern shore of Llandudno, providing picturesque views of the bay and the surrounding bluffs. The Victorian boulevard straddles sandy and pebbly stretches of the beach, where all types of family activities take place. Eat ice cream and join in the revelries in this traditional British seaside resort.
Stroll along the red pedestrian path on a sunny day, appreciating the colorful façades of the buildings facing it. Gaze up at the grassy mound dominating the western end of the promenade. You can reach the bluff’s summit via a cable car to see the ruins of prehistoric hill forts.
Back on the boulevard, inspect the tall obelisk that pays tribute to the local people who lost their lives in World Wars I and II. Notice how the strand is particularly lively on weekends and public holidays. Musical groups can often be heard performing in the bandstand.
Note the joy on your kids’ faces, as they ride donkeys up and down the Promenade or watch a Punch and Judy pantomime puppet show. Enjoy a picnic on the beach or go swimming in the paddling pool on the boardwalk’s eastern side.
Stay overnight at one of the hotels and other spots for lodging opposite the boardwalk. Watch a play, concert or stand-up comedy routine at the Venue Cymru. Low walls divide the wide red promenade from the road. Sit at one of the benches and admire the flower arrangements.
The Promenade lines Llandudno North Shore Beach on the northern side of the town. It runs between the bluffs of Great Orme and Little Orme. Arrive at the town’s railway station and walk north for a few blocks to reach the boulevard. You can also take a bus to a stop two blocks inland or drive and park nearby. See other nearby sights such as the North Western Gardens, the Holy Trinity and the Llandudno Town Hall.
