How can one describe in a public website one's experience (s) in a public toilet ???? They're cheap, clean(relatively)and useful for weary travellers - all of the local bus services stop nearby. But their location shown on google maps is incorrect. They're a five minute walk away from the location shown (This might make a difference to the 'needy' !!)... More

These toilets open 9.30 – 17.00 7 days a week with some exceptions and have an attendant also have won awards for their cleanliness access... More

I took a party of eleven 2 to 5 year old children with their parents and carers, we had travelled 2 hours to get there and some of the children were desperate, went to these so called public toilets to be refused entry! Apparently there were too many of us even though we offered to pay and were very rudely... More

Tatty bit of open space that has lost it's former grace. It used to be a traffic island but one side is now pedestrianised. The once formal gardens are mostly lawned over for cheap and easy maintenance. The "Bog" part of its name comes from the sub terrainian toilets. Unfortunately the lift to allow disabled people to access the "accessible"... More

Situated at the end of Mostyn Street, it's not what some people might think describes a garden, rather a small area to rest on the seating around the pavement before walking up the main street in town, the area is surrounded by shops, cafes etc and an Alice in Wonderland statue as well as a totem pole style edifice.

Ask someone to point out the direction to North Western Gardens in Llandudno and there's every chance the response will be "where's that?". Ask them to point out the direction to Bog Island and you might have a chance of getting your directions. The gardens, such as they are, are known as Bog Island for two reasons. Firstly they used...
