Was looking for parking, inadvertently ended up at the Great Orme. Paid my fee and drove up..hoping I wouldn't meet something on the way down! But it was definitely worth it. The views are astoundingly breathtaking. We managed to just be in time for the bus, so we grabbed our picnic and paid £5 single ticket down (2adults, 2children) .... More

Nice 5 mile walk around the Great Orme if you follow the toll road. Café situated half way round,not far from the lighthouse, if you need a pit stop. Gentle walk down the other side to the west beach then lovely walk down to the King's Head pub to finish

Although I didn't use any of the facilities or shops on offer,the area offers a lot as well as amazing views and walks including a play and information area. Its well worth visiting and the sight just takes your breath away!

A Must see in Llandudno! The train we took offered some information regarding the history of this area. We didn't have much time at the stopping spot for more than a cup of tea/coffee, so didn't walk to the 'top'.

Wow what stunning views from the Great Orme. We enjoyed a lovely walk around the edges and the flint quarry. I would recommend a visit here to anyone young or old.

Take the tram, walk ( if fit!) or travel on the train around the great Orme.Plenty to do for all age groups or just sit and enjoy the scenery at the top.

The trip was just an hour but the views, the driving experience in a 1958 Tiger Cub coach and the informative commentry by John was well worth every penny.

We visit the Great Orme every time we go to Wales. It ticks all the boxes for us as we are keen walkers and even keener naturalists. We visit primarily to see two rare species of butterflies - Grayling and Silver-studded Blue, best seen from mid-June to end July, both of which have unique forms on the Great Orme, generally...
