Hadn't been on the tramway for years, but really enjoyed going back, still seems to take ages going up and minutes coming back. Grandkids loved it.

Fantastic. .spectacular views of Snowdonia and the Conwy Valley from the top, and the Randolph Turpin Café is a great place to take it all in.

Have been on the tram for the last two years when visiting Llandudno and each time I find something new to look at with the scenery. The view of the bay as you come back down is breath taking.

Took the Cable Car up to the Great Orme summit but opted to ride the tramway back down. £4.30 for a single wasn't that bad. Pleasant ride back with the brief change half way. A must do when in Llandudno!

we had a great time here, the old trams were lovely and very clean and smart, it costs 6£ 4 a return trip which was good value. The trip itself is in 2 sections involving a change of tram at the halfway point. It was very windy the day we went , which meant we didn't spend as much time... More

The views on the way up and down are just fabulous and on top of that it's good fun. At £6.00 per head (return) it's not expensive in my mind.....you can drive up if you wish and pay to park, but it's just not the same. These trams have been running up the Great Orme for over 100 years and... More

Fun and quirky it's a must to see the orme unless your a walker then good luck, it is a bit pricey there is a bus that runs right up to the top so maybe check that out too

Wonderful views over Llandudno if you face forward on the way down. On a clear day with no mist, you see for miles and miles. I walked up so bought a Single fare for £4.40. The return £6.00? - so better to buy a return ticket really.

Unfortunately, we were only able to do the top half of the run, initially owing to 'Wally of the Week' having left their car parked across the track, just outside the bottom station, after a visit to the next door watering hole the night before! Local police, and council employees, armed with a large trolley jack, soon sorted that out,... More
