Delighting visitors since 1902, The Great Orme Tramway in Llandudno is Britain’s only cable-hauled road tram. A journey on our historic attraction takes you on a picturesque, mile-long trip from the edge of Llandudno to the summit of the Great Orme Country Park & Nature Reserve. On a clear day, views stretch as far as the Isle of Man & the Lake District.

You can enjoy a day out with all the family (including well behaved dogs) when you board one of our beautifully restored Victorian tramcars.

  • Begin your ascent through the winding roads at the foot of the Great Orme, with views of Llandudno’s sweeping bay.
  • At the Halfway Station, learn about the remarkable history of Victorian engineering and observe the powerful funicular system in action.
  • Then climb aboard another beautifully restored tramcar to complete your journey to the summit. Look out for the wild Kashmir Goats and the rare Silver Studded Blue Butterflies.
  • Once you reach the top, relax, take in the amazing views or explore the Great Orme.

The Great Orme Tramway is a ‘must visit’ attraction on your Snowdonia 360 Itinerary around North Wales’ mountains and coast.

As a heritage attraction, the Tramway cannot accommodate mobility scooters or electric wheelchairs. Foldable wheelchairs and pushchairs can be carried onboard.

Please note it is not possible to book tickets in advance, simply pay for your ticket upon arrival.
