The brand new Llandudno Heritage Trail takes in 15 locations, from promenade to pier, shopping streets to sandy beaches, gardens to the Great Orme headland. Along the way you’ll discover why Llandudno looks the way it does - the perfect Victorian ‘model resort’ - and how it has managed to keep its original appearance over the years. Oh, and you’ll also discover its links with Alice in Wonderland and come across a six-sided Victorian pillar box, a rare survivor just like the resort itself.
