Whether your interests lie in history, bird watching and natural history or simply walking or enjoying spectacular views, the Great Orme has something to offer everyone. The Great Orme is 2 miles long, 1 mile wide and rises 207 metres (679 feet) from the sea. The geology, wildlife, archaeology and landscape 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. In order to ensure the successful coexistence of all interests, the Great Orme is managed as a Country Park and Local Nature Reserve by Conwy Countryside Service. The wildlife of the Great Orme is very rich. The sea cliffs, limestone grassland, heathland and woodland support an enormous variety of wild flowers and invertebrates, many of which are rare and unusual. The wide range of flowers on the Great Orme provide food for many different species of butterfly, and during the summer months 'clouds' of butterflies can often be seen (a rare sight in many parts of the country).
