Perhaps from reading Graeme Greene novels, but I have been here three times. 1st the tram was OOS for repairs. The 2nd I was travelling with friends and "too late to join the queue". This time I was determined. I take a train (or tram) where ever I am. So it starts at 7.00 am each day. For some reason,... More

Adults and kids alike will love the tram ride to the top of this steep peak. What a thrill! And what a view when you get to the top. Bring your camera.

Good view from the peak and a nice tram ride up there. You can wait for a long time for the tram and be charged a lot for a taxi. I went in the day so got the tram up and walked down via Old Peak Road.

We were brave and took the number 15 bus from the Central bus depot and got on early enough to have a front top seat which made the trip up extremely pleasant.
