One may also ask, why is Alice in Wonderland in Llandudno? It may be that Carroll was inspired by various parts of the north Wales coastal town, but a 1933-statue which suggests he devised Wonderland during "happy ramblings" with Alice on the beach is wrong, he said. The Liddells loved Llandudno enough to build a home - Penmorfa - on its west shore in 1862.

Also to know is, what's the connection between Llandudno and Alice in Wonderland?

The Hotel Connection St Tudno Hotel's connection with the books began when Alice Liddell, the inspiration for the 'Alice' character in the books, stayed in Llandudno in 1861. She was eight years old, and on holiday with her family when Charles Lutwidge Dodson (Lewis Carroll) visited the family.

What is Llandudno famous for?

Known as the Queen of the Welsh Resorts, the ever-popular seaside town of Llandudno is a rich hive of history and memories.
