Camera Obscura - Llandudno



Welcome to the Camera Obscura

Or in the words of Erasmus Darwin:
"Lo, here a camera obscura is presented to thy view. . . if thou art perfectly at leisure for such trivial amusements, walk in and view the wonders of my enchanted garden."

First built in 1859 Llandudno's Obscura is just one of seven such instruments remaining in the kingdom!

Perfectly positioned on the heights above the 'Happy Valley on the Great Orme. The Obscura is blessed with a panoramic view extending from Liverpool Bay over Llandudno Pier across to the Little Orme, taking in Penmaenmawr across to Anglesey.
