TICKETS have gone on sale ahead of the Waverley returning to Llandudno!

The  Paddle Steamer Waverley will return to North Wales from Monday, June 24 until Wednesday, June 26 after the "resounding" success of her sailings in 2023.

This time, for the first time this century, the world’s last seagoing paddle steamer will set sail from Holyhead. 

Samuel Brown, Marketing Manager at Waverley Excursions Ltd, told the Pioneer and its coastal titles: "This year's timetable brings an exciting announcement as Waverley is set to sail from Holyhead for the first time this century on Monday June 24, offering passengers an opportunity to view the picturesque North Anglesey coast and the historic village of Moelfre.

"The timetable also features three opportunities for locals to step aboard at Llandudno Pier for three afternoon cruises.

"During Waverley’s 2023 season she was awarded Gold status from Visit Wales recognising the quality of the ship’s facilities and the visitor experience offered.

"Tickets are now on sale at – advance booking is strongly recommended on all North Wales and the Mersey sailings due to Waverley’s popularity."

In June 2023, the Waverley made two sold out trips from Llandudno Pier. The first was round the Great Orme and Puffin Island and the second was around the Anglesey Coast.


She also sailed from Liverpool to Llandudno and Llandudno to Liverpool.

More than 1,800 passengers were booked for sailings. 

Last year, it was the first time the Waverley had set sail from Llandudno Pier in five years. 

The unique vessel had undergone a £3million refurbishment.

The Pioneer revealed last August that the Waverley was returning to Llandudno in 2024.
