It’s not just walks in the park; take a break to Llandudno and you’ll find everything from beaches and mountains to historic sites and festivals, where your dog is more than welcome. If you’ve never been before, we’ve put together a list of some of our favourites to help you make the most of your time:
Conwy Beer Festival
Book your holiday in June and you could find yourself soaking up the sights, sounds, smells and beers on offer at the Conwy Beer Festival. With funfair rides, live music, sizzling food and plenty of beer, it’s a real family affair and dogs on leads are welcome.
If you’re a lover of the Great Outdoors and you and your dog are fighting fit, then why not pit yourself against the challenges of Mount Snowdon? There are various routes and paths, which can take anywhere between five and seven hours. While this isn’t for the faint-hearted, the views alone are worth the effort. Do keep an eye on the weather, though, which can change in just a few minutes this high up.

Step back in time with a visit to Llandudno’s very own funicular tramway! Whether you want to explore the wilds of the Great Orme Country Park, marvel at an Iron Age fort or check out a church built in the 6th Century, this is a unique and exciting way for you and your dog to travel! Hop on at the bottom and choose from a number of stop-offs before you reach the summit.
