Creuddyn peninsula

Creuddyn Peninsula is the geographical term for a small peninsula in the county borough of Conwy in Wales. It includes Llandudno, Rhos-on-Sea, Deganwy, Penrhyn Bay and Llandudno Junction. The combined population of the peninsula is 38,952.[citation needed]

The Great Orme lies at the end of the peninsula, and nearby is the Little Orme. There are several hills of around 100 metres in height, including Bryn Euryn, Bryn Pydew, Mynydd Pant, Coed Gaer, Bryniau, and Deganwy Castle. The Great Orme reaches 207 metres, and the Little Orme 141 metres. The area is usually called simply Y Creuddyn, being the Welsh name of the medieval commote (an administrative unit within a cantref) roughly corresponding to the peninsula itself, though somewhat larger.[1]

The Welsh-medium secondary school Ysgol y Creuddyn is situated on the peninsula. On the west side is Conwy Bay.
