The Great Orme rises above Llandudno

Creuddyn is a peninsula in Caernarfonshire. It includes the town of Llandudno, plus Rhos-on-Sea, Deganwy and Llandudno Junction. The Great Orme lies at the end of the peninsula, and nearby is the Little Orme.

The name Y Creuddyn is the Welsh name of the mediæval commote roughly corresponding to the peninsula itself. It is part of the Creuddyn Hundred.[1]

Once a sparse, rural place, Creuddyn is now densely populated: its seaside towns, most of all Llandudno, expanded greatly in the Victorian period when road and rail brought holidaymakers, and townsmen, here, and they continue to grow as towns. The population of Creuddyn is estimated to be around 38,000, in a fairly narrow area.

The secondary school Ysgol y Creuddyn is named after and situated on the peninsula.
