The Great Orme Tramway

Has been delighting visitors since it opened on July 31st 1902. An engineering marvel of its age, it's still the only cable-hauled tramway still operating on British public roads.

Lovingly restored - Re-live the experience of travel more than 100 years ago in the original tramcars - each named after a Saint. The whole tramway has been lovingly restored, ready for another century of service

The Cable Car

Was built in 1969 and is still the longest of its type still in existence in the UK. It was completely overhauled in 2006.

The cars which can carry four people are carried on a cable which is over 2 miles long.

The lower cable car station can be found on Happy Valley by Llandudno Pier, and the Summit station is directly behind the Summit Complex.
