Great Orme

You can’t miss Great Orme in Llandudno as it is the striking backdrop to any photograph taken in Llandudno itself.

Scenic summit trails take in wonderful views over the elegant Victorian town of Llandudno and across to the Menai Strait and Anglesey. The paths are steep in places so if want you the view without the walk, you can reach the top by tram or cable car. The wide range of flowers on the Great Orme provides food for butterflies in summer – and look out for the resident goats.

Well worth a visit and you have a number of things to do and visit and options:

  • The marine drive is a masterpiece of Victorian road building with great views to Snowdonia and Anglesey. The 5 miles (8 km) drive is a one-way route hanging to the edge of the cliffs.
  • Great Orme tramway is cable-hauled with original Victorian carriages.
  • The Great Orme cable cars pass over the road and tramway. A combined ticket allows you to experience both, go up on one and down on the other.
  • For the more energetic you can walk.


Whilst on Great Orme visit the bronze-age copper mines where you can follow the ancient workings and caverns 150ft (45m) below ground.
