    This was a random spot whilst driving through Llandudno, a quick bit of googling revealed it was abandoned in 2008 and has Grade II listed status. We figured it might be worth a nose around so went down there early in the morning and found our way inside. The place has been mostly stripped but there is lots of decay and some nice features left behind. Visited with Lenston and a couple of Germans, we did our best not to mention the war but the V day celebrations on the radio were difficult to avoid at times.

    The building dates back to the 1870s and was formerly two hotels, Tudno Castle and the Temperance Hotel. It became the Great Western Hotel and then went back to the Tudno Castle name. It was Grade II Listed in 1976. A previous attempt to redevelop the site collapsed, but last year developers revealed a new plan for the site. Under the £10m plans Opus Land would build a 63 bed hotel, retaining the existing facade, create three restaurants, two retail units and a business unit on the top floor.

    I'm not so sure about that personally, the place is fucked. Anyway, here are some photos, I quite enjoyed it in here despite it being stripped out.

    17. The top floor was completely inhabited with pigeons and the floors were extremely sketchy

    18. On the ground floor this was the best bit

    22. As we were leaving the area an angry local approached us asking if we had been inside the hotel, I responded with this....
