Create an itinerary including Great Orme
Accessible by a vintage tramway and a modern cable car, Great Orme is a prominent headland commanding extensive views of the area. Composed of limestone formed over a period of more than 300 million years, these old cliffs abound in fossil remains of primitive fish, sponges, corals, mollusks, and other invertebrates. The headland is part of a nature reserve that includes a Bronze Age copper mine, landscaped gardens, a parish church, and an award-winning summit complex. Tourist facilities include a gift shop, cafeteria, visitor center, play area, and hotel. Stop by on a clear day for a sweeping view stretching all the way to the Isle of Man. Put Great Orme on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Llandudno trip itinerary maker.

  • Pleasant trip up on the Tramway, got very cold at the top but the views were spectacular. Nice shop and cafe at the top.

  • Excellent trip around the great Orme in a vintage bus. Excellent commentary from the driver giving us all the history about the Orme and we saw some of the goats.
