went as a family of 5 on the cable cars up the Great Orme, we were split between 2 cars and the views were truly amazing, there is a cafe at the top and a small park for the kids to play. Queuing was very minimal.

We were staying in 'the Lighthouse' on the Great Orme. What a wonderful place this is to visit. We walked down to Llandudno and caught the tram up to the summit of the great orme, the views are breath taking. the tram took about 20 minutes as you change trams half way up. You can also catch a cable car... More

I like the fact that there were provisions for comfort all over the place. Take the cable car if you can or drive all the way up to the top of the Orme. I thought the cable car was pricey for £9 return for what could have been fairly easily walked or driven and wasn't that high off the ground... More

Well worth the trip to the top. Been up on the Tram and the cable cars and it's worth it for the views. Take an hour or so to enjoy it.

I ambled along the entire road the cars take round the Great Orme. It has many ups and downs and also many seats along the way, to refuel or simply take in the beautiful views. It is lovely to watch the abundance of wildlife going about their daily lives, including a wide variety of sea birds to Kashmiri Goats. The... More

Pick a nice day as the wind can really get up at the summit. The views are terrific and if you want to take the kids there are things for them to do, there is a pub/restaurant and you can get there by tram or car. It's lovely and worth travelling a distance to experience it.
