Only 90 minutes drive from Manchester, Llandudno is a well preserved Victorian seaside town on the north coast of North Wales, complete with an intact pier, ice cream and penny arcades.
We went on the Sunday of May Bank Holiday for a Victorian Day. We found unedited Punch and Judy shows there, a motorised train, steam driven organs and the modern day joys of seaside: candy floss, named tat, cheap ice cream, zorbing on a paddling pool and forced nostalgia.
If you go to Llandudno:
Walk the pier
Get the tram up the orme
Go to the other side- the west shore
If its rainy- head for the multiplex- you might bump into Will and Kate
Fish and Chips at Llandudno Junction
