Using the tram to go up the Orme is a very different experience to driving up by car. For me it was a return visit,having been up back in the 1940's. Queueing at the station is well organised and arriving early (around 10.00) reduces the wait. People with limited mobility might have problems getting on/off but the friendly crew may... More

Step back into history by using this route first opened in 1902. The tramway runs throughout the day. An alternative route, the cable cars, may not run if there are strong winds. The lower part of the tramway route passes a fascinating mixture of houses perched on numerous slopes and edges. Halfway up you change trains and you can stop... More

We were told about the Great Orme Tramway at the hotel and we weren't disappointed, with my partner in a wheelchair we are learning to take disabled access with a pinch of salt, there was no problem here, he accessed the train at the rear and the chair was strapped in, the friendly staff made sure we were fine, the...

Our dog can't walk very well and has to wear little shoes on her hind legs. When we got to the top of the ride we realised that we had lost one shoe on the way up. The staff on the tram at the top were excellent and helped us look for it, but to no avail, and phoned down... More

Ride the tramway to the top and got a great view and appreciation for the spectacular scenery that Llandudno offers. Walked halfway down and enjoyed the open grasslands and sheep grazing.

Make sure I go on this every year when in Llandudno. £7 per adult for a return is fairly priced. Lots of lovely scenery when you get to the top. It takes two trains to get to the top, switching halfway. Same on the way down. Dogs are welcome on the train, however, please make sure your dog is on... More

We used the two trains to visit the Great Orme. It was very busy the day we went but the staff had everything under control and was not a problem. The cost is £7 per adult return.
