Saturday 24 June 2017
The annual Lotus Drivers Club Fish and Chip run to the coast was started 5 years ago in 2012 with the first run to Hunstanton. The event has grown in popularity each year since.
This year on Saturday 24th June we will be visiting the largest seaside resort in Wales, Llandudno. Llandudno’s immaculate seafront, gracefully framed by two headlands, is a seaside classic. It’s a proper resort, with a pier, Punch and Judy and Donkey Man and even Alice in Wonderland.
Privileged display parking along the promenade has been organised for members and will be available from 10am - 6pm. Members will also have the opportunity to drive along Marine Drive, 5 miles of masterly Victorian road building with stunning panoramic views across the sea to Anglesey and Snowdonia. The toll road is £3.00 per car, including parking at the summit of The Great Orme. There will also be an opportunity for those staying for the weekend to discover some of the greatest driving roads North Wales has to offer, such as the Evo Triangle and Capel Curig.
