“Two ways to see Great Orme”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

There are many ways to experience Great Orme and I tried two of them. You can go to the top and enjoy a fantastic view towards the coast. Parking on top against a fee and facilities during shop hours. The road up/down is very steep and narrow and takes a bit of driving skill. The other way is to drive the road around the area - the so called Marine Drive. It's a one direction road starting a bit beyond the parking for the pier. You'll have to pay a small fee to enter, but it is worth it. Wonderful scenery as you take a trip on the cliffs round the Great Orme. Not so good signed so aim for the pier. to find the starting point.

“Great Orme.... Lives up to its name :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

We had a wonderful but windy day up on the Great Orme.
the views were stunning!
I used to visit when i was a kid with my parents and i still enjoyed the tram ride and experience as a adult. the visitor center is well worth a look with things for the kids too.
if you visit wales, its well worth it.
great little cafe too.

“Always worth a visit”

When in Llandudno I always visit the Orme by car or by bike. Great views and the drive or cycle around Marine Drive is great. Its a must-do for any visitors in Llandudno

“A bit foggy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

The fog did ruin the day a little as the views were obviously not as great as they could have been. Parking at the top for only £2 was not too bad and walked down towards Llandudno on the Happy Valley Trail. Very gentle and would have provided great views out into the ocean if there was no fog. I took the zig zag trail back up and this is definitely a route for people with higher levels of fitness. It is quite steep and uneven terrain, but the views are stunning. Luckily the fog was not as thick by now, but the views would be far better on a clear day.

If you are able, walk this route. Yours eyes will not regret it!
