Exploring the Great Orme


Summary (optional)
start content

The Great Orme, rising from the sea at Llandudno, has attracted countless generations of people from the Stone Age right up to the present day. Whether your interests lie in history, bird watching and natural history or simply walking or enjoying spectacular views, the Great Orme has something to offer everyone.

The Great Orme is 2 miles long, 1 mile wide and rises 207 metres (679 feet) from the sea. The geology, wildlife, archaeology and landscape is of such importance that much of the headland has been designated a Special Area of Conservation, a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Heritage Coast. In order to ensure the successful coexistence of all interests, the Great Orme is managed as a Country Park and Local Nature Reserve by Conwy Countryside Service.

For more information on how the Country Park and Local Nature Reserve is managed, see the Great Orme Management Plan.

The visitor centre is open 10am to 5:30pm Easter - October (5pm in April & October or in bad weather).
