Llandudno, Wales

Sep 03, 2017 - National Geographic Orion

Today we visited the very picturesque town of Llandudno and its surroundings. It was our first port of call in Wales and we were the first expedition cruise ship to ever visit. We went on outings to 13th-century Conwy Castle, Conwy Nature Reserve and Bodnant botanic gardens. Some of us explored Llandudno itself.
