Step back in time at the Home Front Experience

Let’s face it. It’s autumn. At some point, rain may scupper your plans. But don’t panic! You can seek shelter in the Home Front Experience in Llandudno, before it closes for the year. This unique, independent social history museum is crammed with nostalgic objects and sounds that evoke civilian life in 1940s Britain. It’s open daily except Sundays from mid-March to early November, and all week during school holidays.

Curator Adrian Hughes is a mine of information. “Few people know that the Inland Revenue was sent to Llandudno during the Second World War”, he says. “Seafront hotels were requisitioned for office accommodation, forcing hoteliers to put all their furniture into storage. To many landladies, the civil servants were known as ‘guinea pigs’ on account of the guinea a week they paid for board and lodgings.” To learn more, check out Adrian’s new book, Llandudno’s Military Heritage.
