Visited the Great Orme first thing in the morning. Could not see a thing. Fog!. Went back in the afternoon. Just wonderful. Worth the slightly hairy drive through Llandudno.

I have been to Llandudno many times and always have a visit to the Great Orme. The views from the top are fantastic (if a little windy). There is a fabulous café at the Orme to either warm up with a hot drink or a...More

A must when in Llandudno. You can drive to the top which gives wonderful Views of North Wales. You need to be a confident driver though as some narrow and steep roads.

We love the great Orme. Take the toll road and go back via the normal road. The goats are happy to be fed. So take a carrot or two. Stop for a drink at the top.

Attractions & PlusBus (3 Replies)
Hi, My husband and I are getting to Llandudno from Manchester using off peak return tickets for the Bank holiday weekend. We were wondering if we can use the PlusBus tickets on both the trams and buses in Llandudno? Are they worth getting? We are also thinking of going up to Great Orme, does anyone know which tram/bus I can get from the pier? Would I be able to use the PlusBus tickets on them? Thanks in advance!

Response fromHelen P|
I've found buses to be quite expensive in North Wales (think c £3.50 for a 3 mile trip) but if you're just planning to be in Llandudno, then you'll probably find you can walk to most places. If you're planning on venturing further afield (Conwy etc), then the plus bus tickets might be worth it (but you don't say how much they are...) The orme is right next to the pier and a lovely walk. As TORRII states above, there are tourist buses that do a circuit around the Orme but these won't be...More

What's the best underground mine tour in North Wales? (9 Replies)
We'll only be in North Wales for, at most, 2 days. I want to see as many attractions as possible including Conwy, Caernarfon and Beaumaris Castles and Bodnant Gardens, realizing we'll only have enough time to spend a few hours at each place. I thought my kids, age 18, 21 and 24 would enjoy an underground mine tour if we can possibly squeeze it in. I've read briefly about the Llechwedd Slate Caverns, the Great Orme Mines and Sygun Copper Mine. Is there one I'm missing? What's the best one for...More

Llechwedd Slate Caverns is always worth a visit and it's not too far to drive from Beaumaris. You drive through some amazing scenery on the way too.

Hi, we will be in North Wales next week for 4 days with Conwy as our base town. Arriving in Conwy around noon with rest of the day to enjoy the town, following day for Llandudno - Great Orme tram, Marine drive and the town. Would appreciate any recommendations for circular drives for the last 2 days. Coast, mountains, towns, 4-6 round trip from Conwy. Thanks

Response fromArthurBrainCell|
I have a couple of suggestions - Take the B5106 from Conwy to Betws-y-Coed, the A5 from Betws to Capel Curig and then the A4086 though the mountains to Llanberis. From there continue along the A4086 to Caernarfon and then back via the A487 to Bangor and the A55 from Bangor to Conwy. The obvious stop off points along the way would be Betws-y-Coed, Llanberis and Caernarfon. The other suggestion would be to take the A470 south past Blaenau Ffestiniog and then the A487 via Maentwrog, past...More
