Signs of the old and new on Lloyd Street

There are a lot of destinations given to pedestrians on the signpost at the corner of Mostyn Street and Lloyd Street. The streets are closed off for the Victorian Extravaganza Weekend. Across the road from a helter-skelter, parked up for the night and fenced off, is the country's oldest bus still in public service. The 1929 20-seat Dennis GL with Roberts (of Llandudno) T20 bodywork, reg no CC9424 started its life with Llandudno UDC operating a service to the summit of the Orme. LinkExternal link The service continued until 1954 after which she was used on a regular service between Luton and Amsterdam until 1971 and then provided tours around Whitby from 2004 until 2014. She has now returned to Llandudno. All her running gear, 4 litre engine and gearbox are original. The Alice in Wonderland tour bus is operated by Jimmy Choo Choo Ltd. Behind them is The Mach 1, one of the biggest thrill rides that tours the UK. It has two four-seater looping gondolas suspended either side of a giant rotating propeller. During the ride passengers enjoy breathtaking views of the local surroundings while experiencing G-forces of 3.5. Archive LinkExternal link
