“The great Orme.”
Review of Great Orme

Great Orme
Reviewed 7 August 2014

The climb is a good but mild challenge. Has attractions such as toboggans/copper mines. Cafe/Restaurant at the summit are BADLY overpriced!

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.

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.

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
