Not to miss; a great adventure exploring through the abandoned (4000 year old) mine shafts. The only thing we liked about Great Orme!

Make sure you'll take a torch to have a look in all the nooks and crannies inside the mine. Passages are at times very narrow, but it's a great mine to visit.

Have been coming to Llandudno for years but had no idea about this hidden delight until it was suggested something to "do" today being overcast. Wonderful! So interesting and wee presented. Thoroughly recommended

Very wet day in Llandudno so we decided to venture underground. Directions from the Tram Station in Llandudno were easy. Just head up towards the Great Orme. Tickets for 2 adults and 2 children £19. Large shop with lots of goodies on sale. Rocks minerals, Jewellery ornaments. The girls were fascinated. Also a very large 2nd hand bookshop. We donned... More

An incredible place to visit and amazing to realise that these mines were dug out with just stone and bone tools. Very helpful and pleasant staff who explain everything. Of interest to young and old alike, with tours of some of the Caverns too.

Well worth a visit although perhaps too physically demanding for some and not for anyone with claustrophobic tendencies. A really steep climb in car perhaps better to take the tramway to halfway station. Once inside there is a short video presentation then it's on with the hard hat and down the mine. The tight spaces and steep descent really bring... More

I liked that you could wander at your own pace. No guide but all easy to read information and they had made it easy for young children to read and made it interesting for them.

Was going to give it a miss as there was a charge for this but glad to see it was £6.75 and kids under 5 free. We could get off halfway up the tram no problems, to get here. I was a bit surprised that it was self-guided and it was a bit spooky down there (if you've watched The... More

I found this please really fascinating. It doesn't take long to get around and we were lucky as we got there first thing and so had no one in front or behind us when we went in. If you do not like enclosed space then probably best to view it from the outside, which is just as interesting, as the... More

This tiny church in Rhos on Sea is a must see for anyone it seats 6 and is on the seafront built buy the Friars many many years ago. We believe that Services are still held in the church.
