    First to Review

    Llandudno's Camera Obscura, which is located on the lower slopes of the Great Orme, is one of the lesser known attractions the town has to offer. It was built around 1860 and uses a series a mirrors to create panoramic views of the town below and surrounding scenery. It isn't always open, it's seasonal and weather permitting, and there is a small charge for entry when it is. However even it isn't open the views are spectacular enough with just the naked eye.

    If you look straight ahead you'll see the town of Llandudno spread out below you, look left and you'll see the North Shore and out to sea and look right and you'll look out over the West Shore and Conwy Estuary and down towards the foothills of Snowdonia.

    You'll need to be fairly active to reach the Obscura which is located close to the cable car station. Just head up through the Happy Valley and veer left at the top. A bit of effort but on a bright sunny day it's well worth the effort.

    I cannot add anything to andys review - its a great attraction to visit. Not always open though but there is a rough guide to opening times on the door.
