The tram up is the only way to go -- unless you are in shape & experienced hiker. Walking down might be feasible -- but why? Be sure to go through the museum ---

My husband came here when he was a child and his fond memories spurred him to encourage me to visit this mighty rock. Thank goodness we took the tram upwards. The views are worth the trip and there are sufficient things to do to make it worthwhile for a family outing. We just mooched about in the bright sunshine and... More

We took the tram up, which the kids loved and spent a fun hour or so hunting for fossils - a great way to spend the afternoon!

We decided to visit The Great Orme as i hadnt been up there since i was a child. We paid the toll road fee of £2.50 which was worth it to see the views. Once at the top it was another £1.10 for parking. Theres lots to do crazy golf, park for the kids, pub, shop, cable cars. We had... More

Great views, but underestimated the steepness of the climb and the effort involved. Has to be done if you visit Llandudno.

Real good walk and a cracking leg workout whether going up or down. Once at the top there's not a lot to do but enjoy the spectacular views and take in some fresh air and relax. The cafe is expensive and the shop is a bit too touristy for me. There is also a bar which we didn't use and... More
