Join us for a walk up and around Great Orme's Head, the limestone hill and cliffs dominating one end of the seafront at Llandudno.

Don't worry if the walks full, put your name on the waiting list and then if someone pulls out you will get a place. We usually tell everyone on the waiting list to come anyway.

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. Our route will pass all the things of interest which subject to demand and timing we can incorporate e.g. The caves, the lighthouse, The Telegraph Station, the Victorian Electric tramway, the visitor centre (beer and refreshments available), the copper mines, the Country Park and Nature reserve with its Kashmiri Goats, and finally dropping down to the famous Victorian resort of Llandudno.

Also taking place nearby on the same weekend:

Why not make a weekend of it? There is plenty of accommodation in Llandudno for all budgets, from hostels to hotels.
