Unique experience in taking a funicular tram from a town street up on to a spectacular headland. We stayed on board because my wife's hip was playing up, but the views were still well worth it. Recommended.

I first visited the Great Orme almost 40 years ago and enjoyed the experience at the time. Looking back at the photos, however, shows that modern times are definitely better as there are facilities now that were not thought of back then, such as toilets!!! The fare is not too steep, unlike the roads at the start of the journey,... More

Second time we have used the tram, it's seems to be the best way to get to the top. One tram to the half way station, the next to the top, well worth the £6.50 fair , return.

Yet another "must do" in Llandudno! All aboard the "toast rack" train on the first leg of your ride...you will change trams at the mid way station on your wayto the Summit with it's tea rooms and assortment of little shops. Lovely walks every way....this was a golf course in it's hey day....with the frequent wild winds a hole in... More

Beautifully presented old rope hauled tram cars trundling through magnificent scenery (sadly in driving July rain). A very sedate way to get up the hill with pleasant and helpful staff. If you like views then this is for you. If you like rail transport then this is also for you.

We went up the great orme on the tram and it was a lovely experience. The staff were so pleasant and helpful from the man in the ticket office to the drivers. The views were breathtaking when we reached the summit, the weather was cool as our driver had explained on the way up, after all it was a mountain.

This is one of the main attractions of the area and can get quite busy but although you are queuing it is still entertaining and worth the wait to travel up to the top.plenty to see on the journey and a great deal of information at the 'stations'
