Adcote House is ideally situated at the heart of Llandudno - "Queen of Welsh resorts" - with a wealth of attractions and activities to suit everybody. Being between the North and West Shores you can walk to either, take a stroll along the sweeping promenade, or explore the shops.
Visiting the Great Orme is an essential part of a visit. Experience the views from the summit by taking the tram service, with its original Victorian carriages, or take the cable car from Happy Valley. At the summit you will find a restaurant, cafeteria, amusements and a gift shop. If you are feeling energetic, then there are several walking routes up the Orme - we have several maps and guides to help.
Also not to be missed on the Great Orme is the Bronze Age copper mine, where you can take an underground tour of the 3,500 year old passages. If you are feeling fit, then a walk or jog round Marine Drive (approximately 5 miles) offers outstanding views, and the chance to discover fossils in the rocks alongside the paths. You can also visit St Tudno's church.
Just a matter of minutes away you will find a range of attractions. In Gloddaeth Street is the Llandudno Museum, which tells local history, and in New Street is the Home Front Experience, an exploration of civilian life during the Second World War. This area is also home to many restaurants and bars. Just a little further is the promenade and the Pier. The Mostyn in Vaughan Street is an art gallery with regular exhibitions, and on the seafront is Venue Cymru.
Venue Cymru hosts a huge variety of world-class shows and performances throughout the year. From opera to pop, theatre to musicals, cabaret to comedians, you'll find a constantly changing programme of top quality entertainment. There is also a restaurant for lunches or pre-show meals, along with comfortable bars.
For those wanting a more active break, there is everything from fishing to walking to cycling to dry slope ski-ing! We can arrange cycle hire, along with many other activities - please ask for details. Slightly further afield are Zip World's zip wires as well as Surf Snowdonia, with its surfing lagoon.
Not to be missed too are all the many other areas this part of Wales has to offer.
Conwy is a World Heritage Site, with its 13th Century walled town and castle. The town and walls make for an interesting stroll, and the quay and old harbour have a small fishing fleet. The beautiful Conwy Valley leads into the Snowdonia National Park, where there are great opportunities for climbing, hill-walking, adventure and exploration. Bodnant, a National Trust garden of some 80 acres, is also set in the Conwy Valley and has several important national collections of plants.
A great day out is to take the train from Llandudno to Blaenau Ffestiniog, from where you can discover some of Wales' steam railways. There is a also an open-topped bus service that runs around Llandudno and on to Conwy. We can also arrange individual guided tours around the local area, using our local contacts.
We always have a selection of leaflets and folders with all sorts of ideas. You will also find a selection of books around the house with touring ideas, as well as climbing and walking information and routes.
