Days Out With Dad Around Llandudno

It’s time to explore days out with dad in and around Llandudno, North Wales, because there is something for every kind of dad, from the adventure-seeker and foodie, to the culture-connoisseur and water sport-lover.  And with Father’s Day approaching, there are some perfect gift ideas and experiences that we know he’d love.

Dining Experiences

Dining experiences are classic and never get old. They are a wonderful way to celebrate, bring people together and spend time catching up, in great company with spectacular views. At Chantrey’s, our two AA Rosette restaurant, we invite you to enjoy an unforgettable fine dining experience sampling our dishes of classic-inspired modern cuisine with a focus on local, seasonal and market-fresh produce wherever possible. Sit and admire the view, sip fine wine and a enjoy memorable meal together.

Water Sports

If, however, it’s all about water sports with dad, our seaside Llandudno hotel will be an instant favourite. Jump in the sea and play to your hearts content, or opt for some adrenaline-fueled activities like Adventure Boat Tours with RibRide or white water rafting at the National White Water Centre. Or for more chilled vibes, stand up paddleboarding will test your balance – discover great SUP (stand up paddleboarding) spots near our North Wales hotel, from the West Shore in Llandudno, offering a beautiful beach launch, to the harbour at Rhos on Sea. Come in and refuel after a day on the water at The Terrace restaurant, with an extensive menu ranging from light bites, salads and freshly made sandwiches to hot sandwiches, mains and chargrill specialities.

Exploring Castles

What could be more fascinating and fun than spending a day with dad venturing to medieval castles. Conwy, Beaumaris, Penrhyn, Dolbadarn, Criccieth and Caernarfon are just a few of our castles just waiting to be explored. And if you don’t want to drive from Llandudno to find them, there are tours like the ‘Snowdonia & 3 Castles Tour’, taking the stress out of driving, simply gather the family, hop in and go explore!

Gift Vouchers – Experiences

Gift vouchers are always a win-win – the perfect Father’s Day gift for the one who loves it all! Give him something to look forward to no matter whether he wishes to book a future dining experience, a relaxing seaside bed & breakfast break, a golf retreat or a weekend of cycling around Snowdonia. The choice is all his, and you get all the credit!


Scenic Walks

For the dads who love to conquer a peak or a path, there are endless walks, hikes, rambles and scrambles in North Wales. From coast to countryside, you can find a route to suit the whole family, from lower-level coastal trails to peak-bagging tracks and mountain tops. Do the popular Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) walk, up one of the 6 paths, or maybe he’d prefer to find a different summit for a quieter, less busy hike. The one thing they all have in common? Fantastic views wherever you venture in and around Eryri (Snowdonia).

Mining Adventure

What about adventures below ground? Head over to the Great Orme Mines with dad and explore tunnels that were mined out over 3,500 years ago in our prehistoric ancestors’ search for copper. Then back on the surface, ‘see how our ancestors turned rock into metal at the smelting shelter and peer down the 145-metre-deep Victorian mine shaft’. The Great Orme Mines are just a half an hour walk or 7-minute drive from our Llandudno hotel.
