As I mentioned in my previous post, me and Hollie set off on a mini road trip to the sleepy seaside town of Llandudno, in north Wales. We went for a few days and packed our days with fish & chips on the busy promenade, tram rides up the Great Orme, a visit to the old copper mines, coffee shops/pubs and 5 course meals at the hotel. Here's some snaps from the time spent there:
A rammed beachside, old Victorian seaside town at its best.
Nice Art Deco building top.
Staircase to nowhere, on the pier.
King of the hills.
Buckets & Spades, following me about.
The halfway stop of the tram which literally pulls you up the hill
A quick trip down the copper mines, this was pretty immense.
Footwear choices of the night spent at the hotel bar.
The next few photos were taken by Hollie on her Digital Harinezumi camera, if you haven't heard of them, google it!
The alternative way up the Great Orme was by retro cable cars.
We stayed at The Empire Hotel, which was literally 1 minute from the beach.
Cone of chips, a mandatory seaside event.

On the way home we popped to Liverpool for a few hours, to visit The Beatles Story at Liverpool Docks. It was much better than I thought it was going to be actually, well worth a visit if you're a fan or just like the 60s. I picked up a snaz fab 4 t-shirt and a Ringo badge too.
Well that's my holidays for this year but it is safe to say Llandudno was brilliant and I recommend it highly if you want a relaxing time by the sea.
