The Great Orme in Llandudno

The Great Orme in Llandudno

Llandudno is a very popular seaside resort which draws holidaymakers back year after year, it's a town which still retains the charm and elegance of its Victorian and Edwardian past which somehow blends seamlessly with its modern attractions.

One of Llandudno's more notable attractions is the gracefully curved immaculate seafront, which is positioned quite comfortably between the headlands of the Great Orme and Little Orme.

As one ambles carelessly along the wide promenade with an ice cream in hand, the beauty of this town reveals itself. With its many magnificent Victorian hotels flanked on one side of the promenade, and on the other side the North Shore beach stretches out with the Irish sea gently lapping onto its shoreline.

Llandudno Pier
Your journey along the promenade would not be complete without taking a stroll on the Grade II listed pier, which takes its visitors out 700 metres over the sea - in fact, Llandudno pier is the longest pier in Wales. This popular pier has a number of little shops dotted up and down selling the usual beach requirements like buckets and spades as well as gifts, there is a charming funfair for little children, two amusement arcades and at the head of the pier a bar and cafe.

Some things never change - Thank goodness
Over the years many things have changed in holiday resorts to meet the demanding needs of holidaymakers, but two things which have always remained a firm favourite with children. These are donkey rides and good old Punch and Judy, whilst grown ups tend to enjoy a more relaxed and never changing pass-time - sitting in a deckchair looking at the back of their eyes (although maybe without the knotted hanky on their head).

In contrast to Llandudno's North Shore beach, the West Shore beach is far quieter and less crowded, offering holidaymakers a sandy beach which extends out even further at low tide. The long beach is perfect, for those who enjoy a spot of kite flyers and kite surfing. Located just off the West Shore beach and offering some splendid views, is the championship 18-hole parkland and links golf course Maesdu Golf Club.

Llandudno's must-do - The Great Orme Country Park
One attraction which stands head and shoulders above the rest (literally) is the Great Orme, a prominent limestone headland on the Creuddyn Peninsula which is 2 miles long, 1 mile wide and stands dominantly 207 metres (679 feet) above sea level. There is only one way to really appreciate this magnificent headland, and that is by making your way to the summit either by car, bus, walking, cable car or tramway.

The two popular ways to reach the summit are by cable car and the tramway

The cable car journey starts at Happy Valley near Llandudno pier where each of the light blue, yellow, orange and red cars holds up to 4 people as it glides slowly and effortlessly up to the summit. At just under two miles long, it is the longest passenger cable car system in Britain.

For that touch of elegance, nothing can compare to arriving at the summit in Britain's only cabled-operated street tramway, starting out at Llandudno's Victoria Station passengers are taken on a one-mile journey, in one of four Victorian tramcars to the great Orme's summit complex.

However you arrive at the summit complex you will be rewarded by some spectacular panoramic views of Llandudno, the Irish sea and parts of Snowdonia National Park. On a clear day, visitors can even see the Isle of Man. The complex offers its visitors a cafe / restaurant, a themed bar, gift shop, children's playground, mini golf course and a visitor centre.

One visitor experience not to be missed is the Great Orme Mines, considered to be the oldest metal mines open to the public in the world. Located close to the summit of the Great Orme, visitors can take a self-guided underground tour through the tunnels to discover what life was like for miners in their search for copper. Returning to the surface, the visitor centre shows a model village depicting what life was like in Bronze Age times. On show in the visitor centre are a number of Bronze Age artefacts which are thought to be about 4,000 years old, on show are also Bronze Age mining tools used back in the day by our prehistoric ancestors (of all ages) who were mining for copper.
