Accessible by a vintage tramway and a modern cable car, Great Orme is a prominent headland commanding extensive views of the area. Composed of limestone formed over a period of more than 300 million years, these old cliffs abound in fossil remains of primitive fish, sponges, corals, mollusks, and other invertebrates. The headland is part of a nature reserve that includes a Bronze Age copper mine, landscaped gardens, a parish church, and an award-winning summit complex. Tourist facilities include a gift shop, cafeteria, visitor center, play area, and hotel. Stop by on a clear day for a sweeping view stretching all the way to the Isle of Man. Put Great Orme on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Llandudno trip itinerary maker.
Great Orme reviews
long walk up but worth it when you get to the top. walked down the other side. would recommend it, take some snacks and drink more »
This a beautiful place to visit with amazing views and fantastic wildlife. If you enjoy walking and the outside I would truly recommend to anyone visiting the area. more »
Beautiful place to visit views are out of this world
Nice views at the summit but not much else to do. Drive up very narrow road to get to the top. All in all above average but nothing epic in truth.
