Llandudno Bay & North Shore
The North Shore of Llandudno runs from between the Great Orme at the top of Llandudno and the Little Orme which lies between Craig Y Don and Penrhyn Bay. The shore is made up of a mix of sand and shingle which gives it both a nice appearance but it can be a rough texture on the feet. The North shore is the curvy coastline that many people associate Llandudno with. Running parallel to the coastline is the Victorian Promenade that is separated completely from the road by small walls, rows of benches and flower beds giving it a completely different atmosphere. As there are no cars allowed on the promenade the walkers are able to enjoy a nice sea side stroll without worrying about any vehicles approaching them from behind or crossing their paths.
Along the promenade are many hotels, stretching all the way down the coastline giving the customers in the hotels some amazing sea side views. The promenade is also the home to Venue Cymru, the town’s theatre which hosts some amazing shows and musical performances with even some famous acts such as Jimmy Carr and Status Quo. As well as the shows, the theatre also has a new area built within itself which is a large conference centre used by businesses around. The theatre is situated in the centre of the promenade just in front on Llandudno’s own swimming pool.
Also along the promenade is the band stand that allows some small local bands to perform freely to the walkers on the prom. The band stand mainly attracts brass bands to play, such as the Llandudno town band that sometimes perform at night time, depending entirely on the weather conditions.
