Cruise Trips From Llandudno This Summer

Cruise Trips From Llandudno This Summer

There are many reasons to visit Llandudno this September, one of them is the fantastic cruise trips that will be available from Llandudno Pier this autumn. The M V Balmoral Pleasure Boat returned to Llandudno this summer after a ten year absence. Llandudno Pier was recently refurbished to enable cruises to return to Llandudno and providing yet another fantastic attraction to our seaside town. Everyone was thrilled to see the return of this iconic boat but if you missed out do not worry as September brings many more opportunities to enjoy a leisurely cruise. We highly recommend a trip on the Balmoral. The cruises offer incredible views of the magnificent Snowdonia range from a different perspective. Seeing them from the sea is quite something and tickets are now on sale for this September. There is another addition to the cruising roster this September with the return of the Waverley; the world’s last sea-going paddle steamer. This means you have not one but two cruise boats to choose from this autumn while staying with the Wildings Seafront Hotel in Llandudno. Both these beautiful vessels provide an opportunity to recapture the romantic days of Llandudno’s past. The Balmoral is offering a variety of cruise options from Llandudno in September: Friday September 4th 2015 15:30 Cruise the Great Orme, Puffin Island and the Anglesey coast towards Red Wharf Bay.
