We’re big fans of Llandudno. This widely known “Queen of Welsh resorts” hasn’t seemed to have got the memo that Winter is supposed to be when the season winds down it seems, and even toward the back end of October, we’ve found that the streets are packed full of revellers that don’t seem to mind that the weather might be a little bit grey and quite nippy! They’re out and they’re enjoying themselves in this glorious, purpose-built holiday town, where the sun doesn’t have to be shining to ensure a lovely day out.
What, you say? What exactly is a Welsh seaside town without the sun, sandcastles and seagulls? Quite a lot actually, as Llandudno proves. The town is packed full of fun things to do no matter what time of year it is, and unlike other British seaside towns, it doesn’t become a ghost town when the season is supposed to be over. (and even in Winter, you’re more than welcome to enjoy a nice ice cream or two!)
One of the very many reasons for this is the much-acclaimed Venue Cymru, which has a variety of entertainments all the year around, but completely and entirely pulls out all of the stops in winter with a series of entertaining stage shows, musicals, dance performances, live acts and even the odd pantomime in order to get you and your children ready for the festive season!
A very real asset to Venue Cymru is the presence of the Cae Mor Hotel with Othello’s restaurant Llandudno right next door- a provider of a very genius idea called the Early Bird Menu.
Llandudno has quite a large promenade, and should you wish to eat before your performance starts, the Cae Mor Hotel has a stunning menu of well-chosen food for your eating pleasure, with a variety of freshly made indulgences that both hit the spot and are rather special.
Even better – your meal is prepared in good time. The Early Bird Menu is a concept made for theatregoers, and you can sit back and relax – safe in the knowledge that as you’re right next to Venue Cymru, you’ll arrive to view your chosen performance in good time, and be well fed beforehand.
