2019 is Wales’ ‘Year of Discovery’. It’s a theme that fits Llandudno and Conwy County like a glove. Uniquely, this area sums up all that’s special about Wales in one neat package – its stunning coast and country, rich heritage and culture, immersive outdoor activities and indoor attractions, food, festivals and entertainment.
Start at the tip of Llandudno’s retro pier and travel into the timeless hills and mountains of Snowdonia, and you’ll come across everything from Punch and Judy to world-class contemporary art, one-of-a-kind outdoor experiences (inland surfing anyone?) to, robust castles, exciting new attractions to old favourites.
Eat at bistros and restaurants serving fresh, succulent local produce. Dip into a vibrant night-time entertainment scene at theatres, pubs and clubs – and don’t miss our fabulous line-up of events.
Stride out along fabulous walking trails. Choose from two National Trails – Glyndwr’s Way and Offa’s Dyke Path, The Beacons Way and the scenic high of the Kerry Ridgeway.
Explore the Elan Valley – one of Britain’s last surviving wildernesses or the Brecon Beacons National Park.
Take to the water fishing on Lake Vyrnwy or the River Severn, paddling down the Wye – or hop aboard a canal boat on the Montgomery or Mon and Brec Canal.
Take to two wheels. On the road you can pedal into cycling nirvana almost everywhere. One staircase to heaven is the climb to Hay Bluff, one of the highest mountain roads in Wales, with views to match.
For family-friendly rides head to Lake Vyrnwy, the Montgomery or Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, or Garwnant, with mini mountain bike trails and a skills park for young tricksters.
