“Travelling in style to the summit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

We travelled as a party to the summit of the Great Orme using the tram system.
You need to be wrapped up well in the colder parts of the year as there are no windows on the carriages. Great for photos & sightseeing. Well worth the cost as the experience will always be remembered. Gift shop on final terminus that is adjacent to a small exhibition of local history.
Well presented area.

“Brilliant views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

Watch the film in the tourist information centre, really interesting. Lots of wildlife to see. We took the tram, but you can drive up to the car park on the top.

“Slope Soaring joy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

The Great Orme is often used by Slope Soarers flying remote control aircraft and the wind can help or hinder this enterprise, however the orme remains one of the UK's best slope soaring sites. There are lost of other things to do on the orme, such as the mining museum and ski slope, however we tend to just fly and enjoy the scenery.

A great place to visit.

“Views to die for !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

We walked up the Great Orme and experienced the most delightful views. People were so very friendly and welcoming and in no time we were at the summit. Those who were tired opted for the tramwaydown, those who still had the energy descended via the top of a quarry which was somewhat interesting in wet weather:- take care.The facilities at the top were excellent but nothing could have surpassed the views. The information boards were informative and clean and just contained sufficient information. For the younger visitors there appeared to be plenty to entertain them on offer.

“Hill with a view and a half”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

Great Orm and Little Orm are located at each end of the seafront at Llandudno. Great Orm has astonishing views over the town, Conwy Bay and inland to Snowdonia. The wildlife, flora and fauna are protected and only serve to enhance the natural beauty and amazing vistas. A trip up this feature is a must for any visitor.
