Really enjoyable trip to the top of the hill, where you are greeted with breathtaking g views and a cafe with the highest homemade cakes that won't let you forget. Great place for families, couples, kids. Definitely worth checking out.

Fantastic nostalgic way to get up Great Orme, we loved it. The scenery was amazing. At halfway station where you change trams there’s lots of information about the history of the trams and you can see into a workshop.

Nice tramride but little or nothing to see at the end. Very disapointed. Council must be full of old C dogers & people objecting to change

We always go up the Great Orme on the tram and either walk down or go on the cable cars. Always enjoy it and it starts the holiday off well. Can be chilly but the scenery is beautiful any time of year. Staff are always...More
