The Great Orme, Llandudno, North Wales
The Great Orme is a prominent limestone headland on the north coast of Wales situated in Llandudno. Its English name derives from the Viking (Old Norse) word for sea serpent, which it is said to resemble.
A cabin-lift (built 1969) and the Great Orme Tramway, a vintage tram system (built 1902), convey visitors to the summit. The 'Marine Drive' toll road runs around the coastal perimeter of the Orme and leads to St. Tudno's Church, a Bronze Age Copper Mine and to the Great Orme Summit complex.
