Llandudno’s leaders were very smart in retaining so much of its Victorian/Edwardian charm. How easy it would’ve been to rip out the tram and the gardens, neglect the pier. Other resorts did in an attempt to boost flagging seaside trade as people began to travel abroad in the post-war years.
Now there is a definite air of nostalgia – a longing for an ideal of a seaside holiday – that brings in visitors to Llandudno.
We stayed in a wonderful little cottage right beside the tram in February. The tracks ran right past our gate. The tram runs once more in March and we look forward to returning.
