Finding us


Where we are

The Rest and Be Thankful lies almost three miles along the Marine Drive which circles the Great Orme and just past the Lighthouse. A £2.50 toll is required for vehicles to pass through the toll gate on the North Shore (just past the Grand Hotel and below Happy Valley) but walkers and cyclists are free.

Llandudno itself is situated on the North Wales Coast and can be reached from the A55 by following the signs from Chester, Liverpool or Manchester. Nearest airports: Manchester and Liverpool. Trains run directly into Llandudno or Llandudno9 Junction, a short hop away. Arriva buses service the town from several locations.

Alteratively, taxis are frequent and can be found on dedicated taxi ranks on main streets and at Railway stations
