Great Orme Tramway

Welcome to the Great Orme Tramway

7 Days a Week
10am to 6pm

(closes 5pm March & October only)

The Great Orme Tramway is Britain’s only cable-hauled public road tramway and has been delighting visitors from near and far since it opened on July 31st 1902.

The Tramway climbs a mile (1500m) high up the Great Orme Country Park and Nature Reserve with the unique journey beginning at Victoria Station then climbing to the Halfway Station exhibition, where you can discover the history of the fascinating funicular and view the Victoria engineering. Change trams at the Halfway Station and continue your journey to the Summit where the views are breath-taking!

On a clear day, it’s possible to see as far as the Isle of Man, Blackpool and the Lake District!

The tramcars have been lovingly restored over the years and you will be re-living the experience of travel more than 100 years ago in the original tramcars, each named after a Saint.
