The Great Orme

Llandudno's main attraction is the near-wilderness of the Great Orme on its doorstep, a striking, rough-hewn headland where there are breathtaking views of Snowdonia range and miles of trails to explore.

The Great Orme is home to several large herds of wild Kashmiri goats originally descended from several goats given by Queen Victoria to Lord Mostyn. The summit of the Great Orme stands at 679 feet (207 m). The Kashmiri goats have received a lot of publicity recently on the national news and in the national newspapers, they have been into Llandudno town centre, West Shore and thanks to social media, they have now become International stars. 

A haven for some rare species such as peregrine falcons and a species of wild cotoneaster (cambricus) which can only be found on the Great Orme. The sheer limestone cliffs of the Great Orme provide ideal nesting conditions for a wide variety of seabirds, including cormorants, shags, guillemots, razorbills, puffins, kittiwakes, fulmars and numerous gulls. The Orme is an idyllic setting to go bird watching, climbing, geography or scientific investigating, or just to relax and enjoy the gorgeous views that it has to offer.
