This is one of the events organised as part of Big Spring Camp 2023.

An 8 mile walk along Conwy Sands and The North Wales Coastal Path, exploring Great Ormes Head and visiting Victorian Llandudno. This walk involves a short drive to the start.

This is an easy going walk combined with some light hearted tourism and is a contrast from the seriousness of the mountains.

Expect some fantastic coastal views looking back towards Snowdonia and out towards The Isle of Man. We start off along the shore line overlooking the vast expanse of Conwy Sands and Conwy Bay.

We will then go around the circumference and climb up onto the summit of The Great Orme - a headland jutting out into The Irish Sea. The geology, wildlife, archaeology and landscape of the Great Orme (Pen-y-Gogarth) on the Creuddyn Peninsula is of such importance that much of the headland has been designated a Special Area of Conservation, a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Heritage Coast.

We will visit the Visitor Centre where you can buy refreshments and souvenirs. We will see the Victorian Electric Tramway and possibly the wild Kashmiri Goats. We will make our way to the famous Victorian resort of Llandudno passing the ski slope, Happy Valley and the pier.

There will be an opportunity to buy Fish and Chips or possibly get a drink before heading back to the camp site.
