In Springwalking

Join us in beautiful Conwy County as the days grow longer and warmer.
See our landscapes and gardens bursting into life with spring colours, and cheerful celebrations put a bounce in everyone’s step!

We’ve handpicked 10 popular routes for you to explore and connect with nature. All that fresh air is bound to build an appetite, so we’ve even suggested some places to grab a bite and relax in afterwards.


1) Blooming Bodnant

It’s a must. Bodnant Garden is a sublime place to wander, returning month after month to enjoy each new show of colour, from daffodil meadows and carpets of bluebells to cherry trees festooned with a froth of delicate flowers. The garden’s famous Laburnum Arch bursts into life from late May. This 180ft/55m tunnel of drooping yellow blossoms is the most inspiring display of all..

2) Conwy Falls Waterfall Walk

Explore ancient native woodland with many paths and viewpoints and be captivated by the spectacular Conwy Falls tucked away in the heart of the woodland.

Why not follow with a visit to Conwy Falls Café where they serve a delicious all day breakfast

3) Great to be alive

That’s what you’ll feel on top of the Great Orme, the headland that rears up like a sea monster above Llandudno.

Three trails to the summit are waymarked to give you plenty of opportunity to take in the spectacular views, Springtime wildflowers peek through limestone grassland, seabirds gather on the cliffs and over 20 species of butterfly can be seen.

On your way down why not follow the Haulfre Gardens Trail and call in at the delightful Haulfre Tea Rooms with panoramic views across the town of Llandudno and beyond! Take a look at all Great Orme Trial information below.
