Had a good few hours up the Great Orme as the weather was excellent. £12.00 for two adults - return - is not that bad either.

Travelling in 100 year old cable trams (Like San Francisco) the views from the top of Great Orme are spectacular, but this is a really only a good weather attraction and would be very bleak in bad weather. The tramway has a nice visitor centre at the top with toilets, visual displays etc, which is more than can be said for the other tatty buildings at the summit. If a fine day this is a superb ride.

I'm sure its all been said before. Its a little piece of history and offers some excellent views over the bay.

Trams run every 20 minutes and hold the lovely original Victorian feel to them. Staff were friendly and helpful the cafe at the top is very outdated though more like a greasy spoon truck stop than a top tourist attraction. Shop service uses a bell because the staff are very busy sat down in the back having a chat even with customers in the shop! However once at the top of the Orme Its great for flying a kite. The gardens and information centre is nice but the cafe does let it down.
