We decided to have a long weekend away to celebrate valentines and stayed at the Ambassador Hotel. While here we wanted to do a few walks on the Great Orme. Saturday we walked through the park and to the right hand side of the steep bank. It was hard work but we got there in the end. We rested the... More

Well worth the walk up! Not a suitable walk for people unsteady on their legs. Beautiful well maintained gardens with plenty of benches for catching your breath if needed. Lovely cafe by the dry ski/toboggan place if you're in Llandudno this is a must!

Scenic drives or walks around a rocky headland within walking distance of Llandudno town centre; worth the effort

We started our walk up the Great Orme through the Happy Valley Gardens. It is a gentle and easy walk to the top. There are well planned walkways with stone steps in parts assisting the climb. Nothing too hard! Amazing views from the top

A cracking walk up the great Orme and there are so many ways to get up there, particularly from the toll road way. Some fantastic views at the top as well. As it was Feb, nothing really opened at the top, bar a coffee hut, it did the job though!

Yesterday our family visited the Ski slope/resort on the banks of the Great Orme with grandparents finding the ideal vantage point to watch daughter and grandson and paying £20 for four toboggan tickets to ride. After 40 minutes they appeared on ride number one to inform us that a piece of track was missing at the top/start of the run... More

The drive along the coastal path via the toll bridge is fabulous . In fact we did it twice on our visit to the area ... The views are stunning. There is a quaint little church half way up . We stopped and had a look around . The head stones in the grave yard are amazing. They also hold... More
