Llandudno

Llandudno ©
Llandudno is a seaside resort, town and community in Conwy County Borough, Wales, located on the Creuddyn peninsula, which protrudes into the Irish Sea. Venture out of the city with trips to Beaumaris Castle (in Beaumaris), Cwm Idwal National Nature Reserve (in Bethesda) and Caernarfon Castle (in Caernarfon). And it doesn't end there: take in the dramatic natural features at Great Orme, take in the pleasant sights at Llandudno Promenade, make a trip to Conwy Town Walls, and contemplate the long history of Smallest House in Britain.

For photos, more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, read Llandudno day trip planning website.

Denver, USA to Llandudno is an approximately 18-hour combination of flight and train. You'll lose 7 hours traveling from Denver to Llandudno due to the time zone difference. While traveling from Denver, expect little chillier days and about the same nights in Llandudno, ranging from highs of 63°F to lows of 52°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Fri) to allow time to drive to Dolgellau.

Dolgellau is a market town in Gwynedd, north-west Wales, lying on the River Wnion, a tributary of the River Mawddach. Change things up with these side-trips from Dolgellau: Gelert's Grave (in Beddgelert), Harlech Castle (in Harlech) and Portmeirion Village (in Portmeirion). Next up on the itinerary: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Snowdon, kick back and relax at Barmouth Beach, contemplate the long history of Dyffryn Ardudwy Burial Chamber, and trek along The Mawddach Trail.

To plan Dolgellau vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Getting from Llandudno to Dolgellau by car takes about 1.5 hours. Expect a daytime high around 63°F in September, and nighttime lows around 52°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Mon) to allow enough time to travel to Cardiff.
