Thanks johnjoy038_11 - How about getting around in town like from the center to Cable Car. We are seniors and walk would be too far.

The Bay is about 2 miles long, from the Pier to the Threatre is about 1 mile, to the rear of the Threatre is a small out of Town Shopping Precenct The Cable Car Terminus is up the Road to the side of the Grand Hotel, up hill. The Tram up to the top of the Grear Orme is in Church Walks, around 500 Mtrs from The Empire Hotel.

Where are you planning to stay?

Llandudno is fairly flat and the Bus would not be required to travel around the Town. Your Hotel is close to Mostyn Street, the main Shopping Street, Mostyn Crescent, The Promenade, Gladdaeth Street, Bus Stop Area near Weatherspoons, and the Railway Station. At the Northern end of the Town there is Mostyn Champneys Retail Park.

The cable car station is up a bit of a climb so you might decide it's worth getting a taxi. However it's not next to a road so a taxi can't take you all the way, you'll still have to walk the last bit.

There are buses in the town, including the number 12 service which goes from the West Shore via the town centre and the theatre and then along the bay to the Little Orme (and then onwards to Colwyn Bay and Rhyl). This service runs every 15 minutes. There's also an open top guided tour bus that runs between Llandudno and Conwy as well as the Marine Drive guided tour bus that runs round the Great Orme and is a very popular tourist attraction.

I'd also recommend taking a trip on the train to Betws-y-Coed. Llandudno railway station is in the town centre and the trip to Betws is one of the more scenic train journeys you'll ever experience. It just takes a bit of forward planning as the train only runs roughly once every three hours so you need when to turn up to avoid a long wait on the platform.

Yes, there are buses to almost everywhere in the area. There are trains east (to Chester and beyond), west (to Bangor, Holyhead and then a boat to Ireland), and south to Betws y Coed, Blaenau Ffestiniog and on the same ticket by the Ffestiniog steam railway to Porthmadog.

There used to be steamboats to Liverpool and the Isle of Man, but alas, no more....
