A ride on the tram up the Great Orme is must for all visitors to Llandudno. It's a ride which takes you back to a time when Victorian Engineering really did overcome and succeed great obstacles.

The price of travelling on the unique tram was very reasonable, it is a two tram trip up & down, with plenty of photographic opportunities - would recommend.

I loved travelling up to the top of the Great Orme (and back again) on this magnificent tramway. at £6 per adult return I found it very good value. Stunning views and an easy way to get to the top!

I have walked up the Orme and got the train back down and have also got a return. It's a pleasant journey with a lovely view and worthwhile if you are visiting.There is a museum that you walk through to change trams half way, that is very interesting. I have been visiting Llandudno for many years and no trip would... More

A good way to get up the orme the views are fantastic. Can be a little chilly up there so be prepared. You have to change trams halfway to reach the top. But a fantastic piece of machinery that has been going for quite a long time. Children will love the ride up and down.

I would defiantly recommend this activity, the sight and scenery are beautiful. At the top of the orme there is a cafe, a little pub, shops and some amazing views.

Great way to get up the Orme to the copper mines and the kids loved it on here. It is very expensive for such a short ride and you do have to change over trams at the half way point to go up to the summit. Worth doing if your in Llandudno.

A terrific trip up Great Orme - Awesome views and superb engineering. A rail buffs must do. The mid station now has a viewing gallery so you can see the mechanisms - terrific - well done.

We visited the Great Orme and travelled on the Tram and we thoroughly enjoyed the ride. The tram was very clean, comfortable and well maintained. The views from the tram back into Llandudno are spectacular and well worth a visit. Our daughter thoroughly enjoys the ride and would recommend to all families.
