Llandudno exudes tradition but has its feet firmly planted in the present. Old-fashioned seafront accommodation sits comfortably with a select number of new boutique hotels. Other new additions include a recently-opened retail development just a few steps from the main shopping street, as well as the Llandudno Swimming Centre - due to open its doors, Spring 2008.
Nothing beats a bracing walk along the impressive esplanade, and on a windy day it's an exhilarating way to clear the head and work up an appetite. Like any seaside town worth its salt, Llandudno offers the customary afternoon teas and trusty old fish and chips.
