30 Walks - Llandudno, known as the 'Queen of Welsh resorts', was largely built between 1849 and 1912 as a seaside resort, under the guidance of the wealthy Mostyn family. The arrival of the branch railway in 1858 ensured its development into the premier visitor destination it remains today. The Great Orme is now managed as a country park and nature reserve. Running around its cliffs is a delightful Victorian toll road, and rising to its summit is Britain's only cable-hauled road tramway 'both engineering marvels. There are many sites of historical and archaeological interest. From Llandudno the beautiful North Wales coast extends via other seaside resorts to Prestatyn. Together they offer stunning coastal scenery and views, best appreciated on foot. The walks in this book comprehensively explore the landscape and history of this part of the North Wales coast.
