This family holiday packs in much more than the prom and the beach – though seafront strolls and sand pies do feature. There are fairground and donkey rides, the Welsh Mountain Zoo, canoeing and the tramride up the Great Orme. Bodnant Gardens and Conway town may not have quite so much to offer the (beautifully dressed) kids – but the Punch and Judy show with performing dog is a hit!

This film was shot by Ken Harding, who lived in the north west of England and frequently holidayed in north Wales with his family. He is seen here with his wife and two children.
