The tour operates throughout the Spring and Summer, enjoy fantastic views of the Great Orme and the stunning scenery.  Hop off at the Great Ormes Mines, the Orme Summit Complex, or Penderyn Distillery.


Great Orme Mines


Uncovered in 1987 during a scheme to landscape an area of the Great Orme, the copper mines discovered  represent one of the most astounding archaeological discoveries of recent times. Dating back 4,000 years to the Bronze Age they change our views about the ancient people of Britain and their civilized and structured society 2,000 years before the Roman invasion.


Over the past 28 years mining engineers, cavers and archaeologists have been slowly uncovering more tunnels and large areas of the surface landscape to reveal what is now thought to be the largest prehistoric mine, so far discovered in the world.


Orme Summit Complex


Standing prominently at the 679ft Summit of the Great Orme, this striking position gives the Summit Complex an incredible set of views stretching in all directions - from Snowdonia to Angelsea, Ireland to England - you can see it all!


Penderyn Distillery
