The trams are very old but extremely well maintained. Adult return fare to the summit £6.50 and no concession fare for pensioners. The journey is in 2 stages -you travel halfway on one tram ans transfer to another to go to the summit. So you can ride one way all the way or ride a segment and walk the rest... More

The tram is expensive for the time on it, I am not usually afraid of heights but sitting on this I was traveling facing the wrong way, seeing the steep drops unsettled me although the scenery was nice, wrap up if it's a cold day as it is a open tram

Very pleasant journey up the Great Orme on the tram, great views. It was very windy and cold the day we took the tram with no windows on the side of the tram it nearly blew out.

First tram is about 10 am, get there early people start queuing about 9.30am. There is a carpark just off the main road called Red Dragon it's pay and display but £3.50 for 10 hours and is only a very short walk to the station. It is quite steep up to it but once there you just wait for the... More

bad weather so we decided to go up the great Orme very very interesting structure with great views. The tram had open side carriages so we were glad we took worm cloths the system works well and although we did not have time there is a mine that can be viewed. Llandudno was very clean although crowded. Shop good if... More

Thank-you to all the Tramway staff for allowing us to share our wedding with you, and for how helpful and lovely you all are. No visit to Llandudno would be complete without a ride to the Great Orme Summit on the tram. Highly recommended to anyone
