|Llandudno as a small village at the foot of the Great Orme in 1841.|
- The old town outline can still be seen at the base of the Great Orme. The roads are not part of the grid pattern and they have Welsh names rather than English.
- The grid system of roads has a curve to it which mirrors the bay and the way the roads leading to the sea widen towards the beach enables special vistas to be viewed.
- The decorative ironwork is amongst the best of Victorian ironwork in the country.
- Llandudno was known as a rival to continental resorts like Nice. It was known as the Naples of the north.
- The Imperial Hotel was the headquarters of the Inland Revenue during the 2nd World War.
