Marine Drive is closed following a landslip. There is no through route around the Great Orme for vehicles, cyclists or pedestrians.
The 5 mile toll road is open all year and offers spectacular views over to Anglesey and Snowdonia.
The road begins past the pier on the North Shore and the first 3 and a half miles are one way traffic only.
You can access the Great Orme summit by turning left onto St Tudno’s Road, about a mile along Marine Drive. The 12th Century St Tudno’s Church is worth a visit on your way to the top. Your toll ticket also covers parking at the summit.
There are many places to park along Marine Drive to enjoy the scenery. The Rest & Be Thankful Café marks the halfway point and has its own car park. On your drive, you will also pass the Great Orme Lighthouse. After many turns, the road emerges at the West Shore of Llandudno.
Marine Drive and the Great Orme have been used by several film production companies for commercials and advertisements. It also hosts many events such as the Cambrian Rally, Three Castles Vintage Rally, Mini Rally and the World Rally Great Britain.
Please note that the weight restriction for the Marine Drive Toll Road is 9 tonnes.
