Where to pick up my car
Llandudno's car hire firms tend to lie just south of the town centre, close to the railway station. There are also car hire firms in neighbouring towns like Llandudno Junction. Those picking up a car from an airport car hire firm can do so from the terminal building or Skypark at Liverpool Airport (LPL).
“The pick-up was easy, it took 5 minutes from arriving at the desk to driving out the car, and the return took even less time.”
Where to go
Llandudno is most famous for the Great Orme, a rocky headland with its own hilltop, a tramway and some rugged sea cliffs. Ten minutes down the road lies Conway, which is famous for its castle, town walls and the smallest house in Great Britain, which was once lived in by a man who was two metres tall.
Just west up the coast from Llandudno lies the city of Bangor and the bridges to the Island of Anglesey, famous for its beaches, the Marquis of Anglesey's column, and the town with the longest name in Britain - Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. To the east lie the popular seaside towns of Colwyn Bay, Rhyl and Prestatyn.
Eating and drinking
Llandudno is a great place to enjoy traditional fish and chips by the seaside, but it also has a good range of restaurants and pubs. For traditional Welsh food, try Welsh rarebit, a kind of cheese on toast, while Brains is one of the many Welsh beers worth trying.
Things to do
There is plenty of scope for fun on the beach with a bucket and spade, while those who love walking can enjoy some superb mountains in the northern part of Snowdonia. As well as Snowdon, notable peaks include Carnedd Llewellyn, Carnedd Dafydd, Y Garn, Glyder Fawr and Tryfan.
The area has a grand array of castles, from Conway to Caernarfon, Beaumaris to Penrhyn. Fans of mini railways can enjoy several, from the Snowdon Mountain railway to the Llanberis Lakeside Railway and the Welsh Highland Railway from Caernarfon to Porthmadog. Near Porthmadog lies Portmeirion, an Italian-style village made famous by 60s TV drama The Prisoner.
