Great Orme Tramway

Welcome to the Great Orme Tramway

The Tramway is now open!

The Great Orme Tramway is Britain’s only funicular, or cable-hauled, tramway that travels on public roads. Delighting visitors since it opened in 1902.

The Tramway climbs a mile (1500m) through the Great Orme Country Park and Nature Reserve to the Great Orme’s spectacular summit. Re-live the experience of travel more than 100 years ago in the lovingly restored original tramcars, each named after a Saint.

The unique journey begins at Victoria Station, a short distance from Llandudno’s seaside and pier.

The Great Orme ’s dynamic beauty, rich history and natural splendour are well worth the journey.

Special discounts available for Schools and Groups of 10 or more.
