Great Orme Country Park and Local Nature Reserve

The Great Orme Country Park is a spectacular coastal headland near Llandudno, on the North Wales coast. It covers an area of almost 300 hectares and the biodiversity of the headland is both nationally and internationally important for its heathland and limestone grassland. During the summer months the Great Orme is ablaze with colour from the huge variety of wildflowers that grow here. It is also home to unique butterflies. The cliffs teem with nesting seabirds during summer, and unusual migrating birds can be seen throughout autumn and winter. With several Scheduled Ancient Monuments and over 500 sites of historical interest , the heritage of the Great Orme is equally impressive. Visitors can experience a feeling of peace, tranquillity and wildness; and take in the spectacular views along one of the way-marked trails, or find out more about the Great Orme, and the many things to do here, at the Country Park Visitor Centre. Visited by over 600,000 people every year, many of whom arrive on the Victorian Tramway or cable car to the summit, there is plenty to see and do. A variety of cafes offer refreshment to weary walkers, while the Bronze Age Copper mines provide an excellent opportunity to explore 3,500 year old mineral vein passages underground. The Country Park arranges guided walks and events that introduce hundreds of school children and visitors to the wonders of the Great Orme each year. You can be sure there is something for everyone on the Great Orme.
