Author Topic: Steamships to return to Llandudno Pier, North Wales.  (Read 6690 times)

I tolerate this century, but I don't enjoy it.

Just thought I'd pop this link from the North Wales Pioneer newspaper:

Apparently, by summer 2013, Steamships will again be taking passengers from Llandudno Pier.  I know that, in the past, there was a stem ferry from Llandudno Pier to the Isle of Man.

Looks interesting.

AKA Prof. Hayley Tempest. AV? What was I thinking?

I do apologise for taking so long to reply to this one since I first noticed it... a few weeks back.
Thank you for taking the time to post the article, it would be lovely to have the pier returned to it's proper purpose and a steam ship to the Isle of Man would be perfect!
I really like Llandudno. A lot accuse it of being a giant retirement home, but it has a wonderful Victorian vibe: the old hotels, the promenade, Punch & Judy, the pier, the tramway, the camera obscura and I particularly enjoy visiting when the steam fair is on.
Is there a Steampunk presence?
If not then it is the perfect outing for one of the nearby groups.

Mind you we must not scare the locals. Wink

That is excellent news!

Note to self: must arrange a trip to Llandudno for next year

I'm going to Llandudno in a few days... too bad I can't fast-forward it a year!

I'll have to let my dad know about this, he'd love it.
