Lonely Planet review
From sea level it's difficult to gauge the sheer scale of the Great Orme (Y Gogarth), yet it stretches for around 2 miles and rises to a height of 207m. Named after a Norse word for worm or sea serpent, this gentle giant looms benevolently over the town. Designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), the headland is home to a cornucopia of flowers, butterflies and sea birds; a herd of around 150 wild Kashmir mountain goats; three waymarked summit trails (of which the Haulfre Gardens Trail is the easiest to negotiate); a Neolithic burial chamber; a Bronze Age mine, the remains of an Iron Age fort; and an ancient church dedicated to the Llandudno's namesake, St Tudno. At the summit there's a cafe, bar, gift shop and various amusements, as well as the Great Orme Country Park Visitor Centre , which has lots of fascinating displays including a 15-minute video.
