Damp Proofing in Llandudno

Llandudno, has been associated with the title “Queen of the Welsh Resorts” since as early as 1864, and is now considered the largest seaside resort in Wales. Renowned since the stone ages for the Great Orme, a great limestone headland which is now host to many tourist attractions, including a tramway that effortlessly takes tourists to the summit. Aside from the Orme, there are many other well-known tourist attractions, from its award-winning pier, to Happy Valley, Marine Drive, Mostyn Street and it’s yearly Victorian Extravaganza, a three-day Victorian Carnival held on the May bank holiday weekend.

The award-winning Llandudno Pier is on the North Shore of Llandudno and was built in 1878. It stands at 2,295ft long, making it the longest pier in Wales. The pier is host to various attractions including a bar, a café, various amusement arcades, fairground rides and various shops and stalls. The pier can be seen from the Happy Valley gardens; which is a former quarry gifted to the town by Lord Mostyn to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria in 1887. The area was landscaped as gardens and hosted various attractions including two mini-golf courses, a putting green and an open theatre – all of which have since declined and been converted into an artificial ski slope and a toboggan run. The gardens however still remain a major tourist attraction. As an old tourist town with houses aging back to the 1800’s, a lot of the properties in the area are susceptible to damp, which is where Damp Proofing Specialists come in.
