Great Orme Tramway

Visitor Information

The Great Orme Experience

description of image

There is so much to see and do on the Great Orme, a wonderland of nature and history. Upon your journey, look out for the two varieties of butterfly which are unique to the area, the wild Kashmir goats exclusive to the Great Orme and the Orme’s beautiful, rare flowers.

You may wish to visit the Orme’s amazing Bronze Age Copper Mines (only a 5 minute walk from the Tramway’s Halfway Station), explore the Iron Age Fort, stone age remains or visit the 6th century St. Tudno’s Church.

Once at the Summit, disembark from your tramcar and the choice is yours: you can visit the exhibition at the Great Orme Country Park Visitor Centre, have a picnic at one of the many picnic tables, have a drink and a snack at the Summit Complex, the kids can play on the large outdoor playground or you can follow one of the many walks on the Orme. Or you can simply breathe in the fresh air and beautiful surroundings.
