Exploring North Wales: Perfect Mother-Daughter Day Trip Ideas for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is one of appreciation, love and celebration so why not make a day trip of it, some mother-daughter time exploring our beautiful coast of North Wales. What would make it a special day for her… Wandering around some of Llandudno’s finest attractions or perusing antique treasures and then a delicious lunch or sipping tea, eating scones and being pampered.


Make it an extra special Mother’s Day here in Llandudno; we have a few ideas up our sleeves that might just help you plan that perfect day…


You never want to start too early on a Mothering Sunday, but once the morning rituals are complete with enough tea and coffee consumed, and you’re feeling ready to go, wrap up and head out for a walk along the coast. Walking makes for a perfect way to catch up, put the world to rights and stretch the legs, and certainly helps to work up an appetite for a special lunch. If mum is a keen rambler, there are some classic Llandudno walks she’ll enjoy that offer our best panoramic coastal and mountain views.

For those seeking a shorter walk, set out for a ‘there-and-back’ along the West Shore Coast Path or head to the end of Llandudno Pier – a must-do for the breathtaking backdrop of Eryri’s’ (Snowdonia) mountains, or head towards the Little Orme and Angel Bay.

There are longer routes like the circular trail around the impressive limestone headland that is the Great Orme, for what many have described as ‘the best views in Llandudno.’ Or you can drive less than 5 miles to reach Conwy town, where you can make your way up to Mynydd y Dref or ‘Conwy Mountain’ for a 2 – 3-hour hike and spectacular views over Conwy Bay.



Another wonderful way to spend a mother-daughter day trip in Llandudno is to discover some local attractions together. From wandering along the famous Llandudno Pier for its shops, stalls and arcade games, and of course, the views, to visiting local museums, galleries and antique shops.

Perhaps a spot of shopping or finding a treasure of your own at the Llandudno Antiques and Collectables Centre is your idea of a perfect Mother’s Day, or heading to the Llandudno Museum & Gallery which tells the story of our seaside resort town through its fine collection of more than 9,000 artefacts.

For more local history, discover the remarkable Conwy Castle, a 700-year-old medieval fortress and a fascinating site to explore. Spend a morning walking around its battlements and climbing ancient staircases to lofty towers to take in the breathtaking views of Conwy’s coast.



Whether you’ve spent the day walking, exploring the local attractions or simply relaxing, no Mother’s Day is complete without time spent together enjoying delicious food.

Our award-winning Chantrey’s Restaurant is the perfect setting, and our Executive Chef has created a special Mother’s Day lunch menu with a beautiful array of dishes. Chantrey’s cuisine is thoughtfully crafted from locally sourced and seasonal ingredients, from the fresh smoked haddock and sirloin of Welsh beef to the rich and delicate flavours of wild mushroom and handpicked selection of Welsh cheeses. Be sure to look through our expansive wine list, perhaps something bubbly to mark the celebration or a delicious red to accompany your main.

If your mother-daughter day requires something a little sweeter, consider the delight of a full Afternoon Tea. A true taste of Victorian extravagance, an Afternoon Tea can feel extra special; something a little different that calls for an occasion and time to relax and take in our beautiful panoramic sea views. Inviting you to sit down for an early afternoon indulgence; sip a glass of fizz while you decide whether to start with a savoury sandwich or a freshly baked scone topped with jam and cream. Your Afternoon Tea will also be accompanied by delicious sweet baked treats, and coffee or a tea of your choice.

If you can’t get together on Mother’s Day, why not give her a Mother’s Day hotel gift voucher for a Champagne Afternoon Tea so she can book a date in the diary for her special celebration.



Did you know that our Victorian Llandudno hotel has a Beauty Lounge that offers a range of beauty treatments and gift vouchers?

There’s nothing that says pure pampering like a beauty or body treatment, from the classic Swedish Full Body Massage for ultimate relaxation and de-stressing neck and back treatments, to cleansing and revitalising facials and luxurious manicures and pedicures. Pick something you know she will love or give her the gift of choice with a monetary gift voucher so she can book something special to look forward to.


There are so many wonderful ways you can spend Mother’s Day together in Llandudno, and by simply being together and sharing an experience – great food, spectacular views and trying something new – will make it truly unforgettable. Plus, mum’s joining us for lunch will receive a special gift from us!
