Castle Hunting in Llandudno, North Wales

3.5 hours in the campervan from Oxford, and we were on the northern coast of Wales, in a sea-side town called Llandudno. Right next to the campsite was Gwrych Castle, whichΒ was built in the early 19th century and has been completely abandoned since the 1980s. The castle has a pretty amazing history. It was used to house over 200 jews during the 2nd world war and was once “The Showpiece of Wales”.

The beachfront of Llandudno was very similar to our trip to Brighton. A long, rough beach leading to a pier packed with food stalls and arcades. We had another long drive ahead of us, so we didn’t hang around too long, but I’m glad we popped into Llandudno. I can definitely seeΒ how it helped to inspire Lewis Carroll while writing ‘Alice in Wonderland‘.
