Many people go up the Great Orme either walking, by tram or cable car. If you can manage it, a walk via "Happy Valley" is good but for those able to it is well worth exploring the further parts of the Orme, using the well-marked footpaths.

You can either travel up the Great Orme by tram, by car or you can even walk. Fantastic views from up at the top and there is also a nice cafe and gift shop etc. A nice way to spend a morning or afternoon with plenty of fresh air, especially when the weather is good.

The views are unrivalled, the drive up always has the family excited and the facilities are great at the top. The Scenic road down is outstanding and well worth the extra time. Its been great to visit as a child, a young dad with young children and now an old dad with reluctant teenagers!

We took the cable car and this gave tremendous views and enabled us to take some fantastic photographs using the 300 mm lens. We went walking once on the top of the Orme. Brilliant!!

the scenic route around the coast line is nice or the tram takes you to the top still with great views and good play area/cafe for the children

We spent a whole day wondering around the Orme. The views are amazing. The weather meant we didn't rush.
