Conwy and Llandudno is a perfect place to spend a weekend. Both the towns are a decent size, but not huge – so you can see them in a day if you’re up for it! Each one has their own differences too, so you’ll be in for new experiences both days.
So get ready to explore the shops, the coast and the tasty restaurants Conwy and Llandudno have to offer in our ultimate 48-hour guide.
Day One Itinerary – Conwy
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so start your day right by heading over to the award-winning butchers ‘Edwards of Conwy’ and grabbing yourself some breakfast.
For the first activity of the day, partake in a history lesson, by exploring the town’s most famous landmark, Conwy Castle.
After getting lost around the castles many wards, rooms, and walls, lunchtime might appear before you know it! Thankfully, there are many great options nearby. L’s Coffee and Bookshop on the High Street has the perfect lunch selection.
An afternoon is best spent pottering around the shops – if you want something for your home or a gift for a loved one, Accents on Rose Hill street has a collection of goodies to suit the taste of many. If you haven’t had enough history for the day, you could perhaps make a stop at Plas Mawr too.
After a long day of walking around the town, you might want a relaxing evening. Head out of the town to the Manor, at Gorse Hill Lodge and Caravan Park. Here you can get a fantastic meal, and enjoy the view out towards the Conwy Valley. The perfect end to a perfect day.
Day Two Itinerary – Llandudno
Head down the A470 to Bodnant Gardens – a great spot for a morning stroll. If you’re visiting in early Summer, you might be lucky enough to see the Laburnum Arch in full bloom. Regardless, there is still plenty to see around the gardens and the wooded steep Valley.
On your way out, the garden’s Pavilion Tearoom might entice you in with the scent of coffee and freshly baked Scones. The nearby Bodnant Food centre has plenty more options if you’re after something a little more.
For the afternoon, head back over to Llandudno and visit the famous Great Orme. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can walk to the top. Or, the journey upon the Victorian Great Orme Tramway. Once at the summit, you’ll get a fantastic panoramic view of the coastline.
No seaside trip will be complete without, you guessed it – fish and chips! Spend your evening on the beautiful promenade with your favourite order. Watch out for the seagulls, however, they are out to steal your food.
