I went with my Mum and 7 year old daughter. It was a shame the cable cars weren't on, but I understand why, We enjoyed the tram way and once at the top, although extremely windy found the Great Orme interesting. My daughter really enjoyed the play area. Lovely food available at reasonable prices. Great adventure had by all Recommended

Our plan for our visit was to take the tram to the top and then get the cable car down. However it was a very windy day so when we reached the top the cable cars were closed. The tram ride up was enjoyable and at the top we had spectacular views. Cafe was nice and my teenagers spent a... More

We played Crazy golf, had and ice cream and went both ways on the cable car. The views were breath taking, we could have been in Austria or Switzerland.

Used the tramway, where we met the very friendly and helpful driver. Scenery is absolutely stunning but beware it is 10 degrees colder and breezy on the top of the Orme. The views over Llandudno were stunning and it was nice to see the Kashmir sheep grazing on the Orme.
