The Great Orme
More than 200 metres above the sea, The Great Orme is an astonishing coastal landmark. The limestone headland, whose name means 'sea monster', has ancient origins and protected nature reserve status. Take an enchanting guided walk up to the top, head to the summit on the Great Orme Tramway, search for species (you can't miss the goats!) or expand your knowledge in the visitor's centre.

Llandudno Ski Slope
For thrillseekers and restless wrigglers, Llandudno Snowsports Centre dry ski slope has a variety of adrenaline-fuelled activities to choose from, including skiing, snowboarding, tobogganing and tubing.
Built back in 1859, Llandudno's Camera Obscura is still a thing of awe. It sits at the top of Happy Valley on the Great Orme, a vantage point that makes its 360° panorama possible. On clear days, you can see all the way to Liverpool Bay and Anglesey.
Part of the World Heritage Site, Conwy Castle was built for King Edward I at the end of the 13th century. Some 700 years later, it is still breathtaking. Go on a guided tour to take in the full picture, including easily-overlooked nooks and crannies and tales of Medieval history locked in the walls.
Welsh Mountain Zoo
Seals, chimps, tigers, bears, beautiful birds and exotic creatures can be seen at the Welsh Mountain Zoo. It is a conservation centre with revolving displays and a year-round programme of events. Beware the penguins and hawks; when they come out to play, they can be very friendly!
Bryn Euryn Nature Reserve
Climb to the top of this nature reserve on a limestone hill for panoramic views of the surrounding area, overlooking Rhos-on-Sea. A network of walking paths at Bryn Euryn winds through woodland and across grassy knolls, leading to the ruins of Llys Euryn – a historic 15th century house and 6th century hilltop fort.
Stroll across Llandudno's main beach and head up onto this classic Victorian pier. It comes complete with traditional Welsh gifts, Punch and Judy stalls, penny arcades and retro stores. This landmark was originally built in 1876, and it remains a wonderful place to grab an ice cream while watching the coastal world go by.
Where else can you see lapwings and goslings against a backdrop of Snowdonia's mountains and Conwy's medieval castle? RSPB Conwy is a 47-acre wetland centre with precious species of fauna and flora and untamed landscapes. The visitors' centre has toilets, a cafe, a shop and binocular-hiring facilities.
