Llandudno Junction (Welsh: Cyffordd Llandudno), once known as Tremarl, is a small town in the county borough of Conwy. It is part of the ancient parish of Llangystennin, and it is located south of Llandudno. It adjoins Deganwy and is to the east of walled town of Conwy, which is on the opposite side of the River Conwy.
The town grew up around Llandudno Junction railway station, which is a junction between the Crewe-Holyhead line and the Llandudno-Blaenau Ffestiniog line. There are through trains from Manchester to Llandudno, but passengers travelling from London, Cardiff, or Holyhead to Llandudno usually have to change trains at Llandudno Junction.
Llandudno Junction, in addition to its passenger interchange, had a major steam locomotive servicing depot and extensive goods facilities. This railway depot was called 6G, and a new section of the A546 (carrying the name "Ffordd 6G Road") now crosses the site. The site of the depot and goods yard has been redeveloped, now accommodating a business park, fast food outlets, a leisure centre, a Cineworld multiplex cinema, and a Tesco supermarket.
Local employment opportunities changed significantly in the latter quarter of the 20th century owing to the loss not only of the railway depots but also of a major electrical manufacturing facility (Hotpoint), which factory site has been redeveloped as a housing estate.
In 2006 a new Welsh Assembly office building is under construction, and this will house around 525 employees, including about 100 tourism, transport and enterprise jobs which will be relocated to the site from Cardiff. The building is due to open in spring 2008.
The Station Hotel (now a Beefeater hotel & restaurant/pub) stands opposite the railway station. It is known locally as 'The Killer', as this is where the railway workers would spend their lunch breaks, i.e. 'killed time'.
There are two primary schools in Llandudno Junction, Ysgol Maelgwn and Ysgol Nant-y-Coed (ysgol is the Welsh word for school).
Llandudno Junction Football Club enjoys good support from the locals.
