Composed of limestone formed over a period of more than 300 million years, these old cliffs abound in fossil remains of primitive fish, sponges, corals, mollusks, and other invertebrates. The headland is part of a nature reserve that includes a Bronze Age copper mine, landscaped gardens, a parish church, and an award-winning summit complex.

  • Fantastic location, stunning views, breathtaking visual harmony. Can be seen going by car, on foot or by public transport. Easy access. The town of Llandudno where the Great Orme is wonderful, cozy and romantic place with beautiful buildings. Everyone in Wales has to go there.

  • We went up every day on our visit stunning views. The Nature Trail is worth the walk. Or take the tram or drive round. Well worth a visit. 
  • The place has charm, no question. But the view from above has its own charms - especially if the weather plays along, which means more "sunny with an interesting cloud game" as "smooth blue sky".
