Whether reached by car, on foot, by tram or cable car, the
summit of Llandudno's headland offers spectacular sea and coastal
views and on a clear day the Isle of Man is visible. As well as
offering excellent walks - look out for free-roaming goats - Great
Orme also provides visitor facilities including a café, toilets and
a children's playground.
Traversing the crescent-shaped bay between Great Orme and its
smaller twin Little Orme, Llandudno's wide promenade is backed by
grand, white-washed Victorian hotels and is a delightful spot to
sit back on one of the many benches provided and watch the world go
Llandudno's historic highlights can be easily explored on foot
and a dedicated Town Trail provides a recommended route which
begins at the town's library and takes in notable features
including several of Llandudno's churches, the promenade, the
railway station, the pier and two of the town's public gardens.
Great Orme Copper Mines
In 1987, the world's largest prehistoric copper mines were
discovered beneath Great Orme, and today visitors can explore a
network of tunnels laboriously excavated by our Bronze Age
ancestors around 3,500 years ago.
