Beautiful gardens, stunning setting but nightmare parking

Well worth a trip but leave the car at home. Build on the edge of Great Orme so might be inaccessible for some. Stunning sea backdrop. Ideal for a cafe visit or picnic.

Hasn't changed much since I was a child. Apart from removing the rather dangerous slides and roundabout which I remember flying off with regularity in my youth it's the same as it ever was. Gardens, grass lawns, a stone circle made for an Eisteddfod it's quiet and peaceful.

These gardens are built on the side of the Great Orme, and contain many features relating to Lewis Carrol characters. It has some interesting trees, and we spent ages just watching the squirrels! There are areas for children to run around, and for the older ones just to sit and enjoy the views.

Another great place to wander, very steep in parts but definitely worth the effort. Lots of nice winding paths with stunning views out to sea.

Well worth a visit. Peaceful, beautiful setting and a lovely experience for everybody. Children will love the open green and it's a great place for a picnic but please - do remember to take your litter home with you.

Pretty enough place, you have to be quite fit to walk all the way up to the ski centre. The gardens are a little unkempt but charming in their own way. For me it's all about the view though. Fantastic seaviews, out across the pier, worth the walk for that alone. If you've got a naughty streak (like I have)... More
