takes you to eight locations where you'll find HistoryPoints QR codes along the prom - with no roads to cross. Simply choose "For Kids" at the top of the web page to see a colourful page with shortened text and a star letter for the children to collect. By entering all the star letters on a free leaflet - available online or from the Tourist Information Centre or the Rock Shop near the pier entrance - you'll spell out a word linked to Llandudno's history. Along the way you'll learn about: puppets made from driftwood in 1860 and a family of 15 children brought up in a cave; see a photo of a First World War airship at the prom; and discover how Llandudno's first lifeboat cox was called out in emergencies by his daughter as he worked deep underground!
