The Summit Complex stands prominently at the 679 ft. Summit of the Great Orme in Llandudno. From this striking position, the summit complex offers you breath-taking views of Llandudno, areas of Snowdonia national park, the Isle of Anglesey and the Irish sea.
With models, interactive displays and exciting films the whole family will enjoy finding out more about the diverse wildlife and history of the Great Orme. Watch the sea bird colonies via a live video-link, test your knowledge on the digital interactivities and spot rock pool creatures in the aquarium.
The Summit Complex consists of a Café/Restaurant, a boxing themed bar based on the famous Randolph Turpin and Gift shop which provides fantastic souvenirs as a reminder of your visit. Also at the summit is a children’s playground, mini golf and visitor centre.
Travel to the summit using one method or a combination of Tram, Cable Car, Bus, Walking or Car. If you decide to choose the cable car or tramway you will have an experience to remember. The cable car is the longest of its type in the UK and the tramway transports you back to a Victorian bygone age. Both offer fantastic views, and children especially enjoy this memorable experience.
Most of the Summit Complex’s interior is dedicated to displays on the peninsula’s natural history, but the real hidden gem of the complex preserves a relatively recent piece of history. A room toward the back is covered in materials related to UFO sightings on Great Orme and the surrounding area, specifically one incident in the late 1990s. North Wales is the third most common place for reports of UFO sightings and this hidden gem of a room is packed full of UFO and sci-fi goodies.
