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 two miles long, one mile wide and rises 207 metres 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 and a Site of Special Scientific Interest. 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.
Attractions on The Great Orme include The Great Orme Tramway, which first started operating in 1902 and is now fully restored and still the only cable-hauled tramway still operating on the public highway.
The miles of trails within the park lead you to all the best bits including acres of beautiful wild flowers, colonies of seabirds and clouds of rare butterflies. And if the weather lets you down there's still an excellent visitors centre, the summit complex, copper mines and changing skies that you can never tire of admiring.
