Llandudno Transport Festival

@ Llandudno

The Llandudno Transport Festival is held on the sea-front showground in one of the most picturesque bays of the UK. Llandudno is Wales' largest resort and famed for its Victorian style and Edwardian elegance. The Transport Festival is the largest in Wales and one of the U.K.'s best-loved events. It is held in conjuction with the Victorian Extravaganza. Costume, vintage fairground and a host of attractions combine in a unique annual celebration of transport and entertainment heritage within the town. The two events are linked by a free shuttle-bus service.

Regular Events:

The Saturday road run to the summit of the Great Orme has been re-routed this year. Congestion and vehicle numbers have made the Orme Summit an impossible destination, so it is anticipated that the historic town of Conwy will be the the venue. Spaces within the walls should allow vehicles to be drawn up for display, and the town will be a delight for visitors. Further details of the Saturday road run will be available on the Festival Field during the late afternoon.

Sunday sees two major events, there is the annual Crosville gathering of buses, coaches and enthusiasts ancient and modern and the Extravaganza street parade. Festival entrants join with walkers in costume, cyclists, marching bands, entertainers and traction engines to circle the town. The spectacle lasts almost an hour.

On Sunday evening the second road run normally takes place around the celebrated Marine Drive for superb coastal views and most unusual photo-opportunites. The half-way stop by the 'Rest and be Thankful' cafe is a transport spectacular in itself. There will be more information on whether the road run takes place on the Festival field.

The parade around the town is repeated at midday on Monday
