I'd actually rate this somewhere between average and very good. The ride is worth the money, the views are good and and there is good information about the history of the Great Orme and the tramway along the way just make sure you take a bit of time to read it at the halfway point as you change trams.

Nice to see how the Victorians did it. Terrific views all the way to the top. Well worth the experience.

This is definitely an experience not to be missed if you are in Llandudno. The ride up the Great Orme on the tramway is brilliant just to watch the town unfold below as you go up the hill.

This little ride takes you to the top of the hill where you get some superb views. We enjoyed the view as well as a cream tea at the top. It was very relaxing and you get some good views on the journey. As I recall it was £6 each return and whilst thinking it was a bit pricey when... More

The tram system in Llandudno is over 100 years old. It's not the cheapest or fastest method of travel but it's unique and fun for everyone. Beautiful scenery when it arrived at the top.

The tram ride was fab and utterly beautiful, the kids loved it. The view from the top is spectacular and a lovely little park. The visitors centre and cafe at the top are highly disappointing with poor quality food/drinks and very grubby. The centre was neither here not there and we were totally baffled by the space wasted on UFO... More

Fun, excellent views, comfortable seats and ride you'll never forget. This must be one of Llandudno's best attractions, and I advise every visitor to the town to take a ride. There is a halfway halt, so you can explore the Orme from the middle, then take the final ride to the top, where a wonderful panoramic view waits. There are... More

A treat, a trip back in time, very nostalgic, children would really love it, once you reach the summit the views are spectacular especially on a hot sunny day but it its windy can be a little chilly, café at the top etc go enjoy the ride.
