Coach Trip to Llandudno

Llandudno is a seaside resort, town and community in Conwy County Borough, Wales, located on the Creuddyn peninsula, which protrudes into the Irish Sea. Walking will be available on Little and Great Orne and along the Welsh coastal path. 

B Walk       Leader   Tony Culverhouse                9.5 miles         Moderate

We head east along Llandudno promenade, then a road and stony track which leads us uphill into woodlands passing Gloddaeth Hall. We then enter Nant-Y-Gamar woods and on to Nant-Y-Gamar Hill. A farm road and path takes us back to the promenade, continuing west to Happy Valley Gardens. Ascending paths and quite a lot of steps take us past the ski centre before crossing the hillside and joining a track on to St Tudno’s church. After a short stretch of road walking and then follow a track onto the Great Orme where we cross a plateau of meadows and limestone pavements. (we don’t actually walk on the limestone)

We then descend to Gogarth and on to West Beach, then back through the town to our starting point. Fine views – as you would expect.

C Walk  and D walk  Leader Michael Bates    C walk is 9 miles,  D walk 4.5 miles.  Both Easy

Many people who have visited Llandudno have never been across to West Shore. From the town the route takes us along the lower slopes of the Great Orme to West Shore. The path passes through  Haulfre Gardens where there is a nice tea rooms which overlook the resort. As we reach the West Shore, weather permitting, there are fantastic views towards the mountains, the Conwy estuary, Anglesey and Puffin Island. The path then follows the shore line through sand dunes along the Conwy estuary. As we approach Conwy passing Deganwy Marina we can see the imposing Conwy Castle looming in the distance. The D walk ends in the interesting small town of Conwy where you can spend some time if you wish before returning by public transport to Llandudno. Please ensure you have some money for the bus fare as you cannot travel free with a bus pass in Wales.  Cost of a single ticket is £3.80. See Sue Baxendale for a refund at the end of the day.

C walkers will return by a similar route to Llandudno but you will be able to enjoy the views from a different perspective.

Both walks are virtually on the level on excellent paths. Walking boots not essential, a decent pair of trainers will suffice, if preferred. There are public toilet facilities along the route and in Conwy.

Pick up time for return journey.    Returning Home:  6.00pm from the coach park. Please do not ask the driver for extra stops on the way home as this can be dangerous and make the return journey longer for everyone
