A walk around the Great Orme #9

Picture of the Lighthouse B&B Llandudno

We’re taking a break for a while, so we thought we would take you on a walk all the way around the Great Orme until we’re back. There will also be a few interesting facts mentioned on our walk, which we have compiled from various sources. Apologies in advance if any aren’t 100% accurate!

After the next corner we get our first sight of the old lighthouse, which is now a guest house.

The lighthouse was built by the Mersey Docks and Harbour Company in 1862.  Its warning beacon shone until 1985, when the optic was removed. The optic can now be seen at the Visitor Centre on top of the Great Orme.
