In Llandudno there are many adventures to be had. You can stroll along the pier, take the tram up the Great Orme, come down a ski slope and explore Conwy Castle - a World Heritage Site.

St Davids Cathedral

St Davids, famous for its cathedral, is also in the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. A quick trip to the islands of Ramsey, Grassholm, Skomer and Skokholm give the opportunity to view sea life and catch sight of a puffin or two.

Is your child a bookworm? There is no place quite like Hay-on-Wye. This town of books has many retailers to explore, as well as its own castle that has its own honesty bookshop.
