In terms of things to do going on the Great Orme tramway is amazing. Where you can play crazy golf at the top. Near the seafront is often a punch and Judy show.

They may also enjoy the Great Orme Copper mine and especially the short trip through the underground tunnels (as long as they aren't claustrophobic and frightened of narrow places).

Also go for a walk along the pier. There is a small fair ground on it, suitable for the little ones There is also a traditional Punch and Judy show on the prom near the pier. This always seems to have a crowd of engrossed children watching and joining in.

Thank you for reply, is there all day parking nearby? What is the postcode to get exactly there and how to go through tunnels? Thanks

We were there, Tuesday to Friday and there were a lot of people there. We attempted to go on the Pier on Wednesday afternoon, gave up, people were like flies and we didn't feel Covid safe.

A Big Wheel turned up on the Pier at the start of the week, they were testing it out on Thursday evening.

Parking can be a problem, if you are very lucky you can park on the road for free in the are of the Life Boat Station up to the next roundabout.

There are a number of Car Parks in the Town, all "Pay and Display" The Traffic Wardens are about all the time, don't attempt to park in restricted areas with out paying.

There's a little funfair with rides for young children on the pier, and in the last couple of days a new Ferris Wheel has also appeared on the pier - https://www.llandudnopier.com/

Bonkerz is an indoor play centre which might be a useful place to visit if it's raining - https://bonkerzfuncentre.co.uk/

If the weather is nice there are two beaches to visits - the North Shore and the West Shore (of which West Shore is by far the better beach).

There's a toboggan run at the ski centre on the Great Orme. It's up quite a steep hill but you can drive up and there's a car park - https://www.jnlllandudno.co.uk/slopes/tubing-tobogganing/

Bodafon Farm Park would be a good place to visit with young children. It's a bit of a way from the town centre so you'd need to drive there but again there's a car park on the site.

There is parking throughout Llandudno but it's a mixture of street parking with time limits, street parking with no time limits and car parks that you have to park on. It's not a big town and other than the Great Orme it's mostly flat so your best bet might be to find somewhere reasonably central so you don't have to keep moving your car. The Town Hall car park might be an option if you're happy to pay and display or there are car parks at Maelgwyn Road and York Road which are a bit cheaper but a bit further from the town centre - https://www.conwy.gov.uk/en/Resident/Parking-Roads-and-Travel/Parking-and-Permits/Coach-and-Car-Parking/Pay-and-Display-Car-Parks/Llandudno-Car-Parks.aspx

The postcode for the Copper Mines is LL30 2XG - there's a car park on site.
