A really good Tram service running every 10 minutes. A very enjoyable experience. £7 return I think. Hang on to your hats though. It can get a bit blowy. Drivers very friendly and helpful. Only complaint was the gentleman in the ticket office. Miserable and Snapped at my missus for (he said) putting her debit card in the machine too... More

The views were beautiful and it was fun to ride the tram. At the top there is a nice playground for kids. The cable cars were closed the day we visited

Can't believe they have stopped doing the local pay charge very dissapointed! Nice for the kids instead of having to walk up all the time and nice to admire our beautiful views were so lucky to have. Very shocked to say the least

Our Hotel was just minutes away from the Tramway so this was a "must-do"! We love the characteristic Victorian Style Decorations & amazing Tramway Engineering! The climb up the Great Orme Hill is quite exhilarating as you drive past cottages & then to the half-way stop & summit plateau. We'd recommend that you also take a walk from the half-way... More

It's worth a jaunt up the steep hills on 2 trams to take in the views and go for a nice walk... try it
