As we are keen geocachers we spent many hours walking around the area. If you are able a walk around the Marine Drive is a must, around 4 miles i would guess. We cant see the point of paying £3 to drive around and miss all the views. Beware of the boy racers though, we had cars pass us at... More

This is a great place to stand or sit and admire the views, of which there are plenty. In November it wasn't busy with other tourists, so a lovely peaceful place. In November the cable car, etc aren't running so you will need to drive, but you can take the 'scenic route' back if you don't mind hairpin bends.

We live in Cheshire and are regular visitors to Llandudno. We always make sure that we walk around the Orme. We've tried both directions and definitely prefer starting at the West Shore. There's loads of parking and also some toilets. It 's quite a pull to start. The first part is all uphill. There are some amazing houses to look... More

5 hour walk on the Orme Starting from Happy Valley and walking anti Clockwise Taking in the Summit then back down to the coastal paths . Great views and plenty of Flora & Fauna to observe on route. Lovely sunny day but bitterly cold wind, dress accordingly and take a flask, the cafe was open on the summit. Well worth... More

We walked up to the top but there is a railway to take the old infirm or lazy. Walked the whole way round the Orme fantastic views, we were lucky as it was a very clear day. Would benefit by having some way markers to clearly indicate the route round the Orme.
