Even though the weather was awful, the trip was really worthwhile. The staff who run this tram are brilliant really friendly and helpful. I have no doubt the views are stunning from the top, unfortunately we were engulfed in cloud so couldn't really see much, but still had a good couple of hours. A great attraction especially for the kids.

Our trip up the Great Orme was comfortable and better than the walk. The staff were friendly and helpful and the trams ran frequently throughout the day.

The journey to the top of Great Orme is made mush better when you go up on the tram. There are no windows in the carriages so if the weather turns bad, you could get wet. However you're in for a treat if the weather is good because you can see all over Llandudno promenade as you climb up the... More

Believe me, even for a 21 year old a walk to the summit is too much, so we decided to get the tram. Even though we went on the wrong day to the top the tram was still a fun way to get to the copper mines and to the summit. Even got some old style western photographs at the... More

Its no good doing it once, it has to be repeated a number of times as you cant see everything in one trip, so much going on which ever way you look.

A lovely experience if a little pricey (£20 for family of 4 under 3 years free) but worth it to keep such a great attraction going. Staff friend. Beautiful scenery.

Took the cable tramway to the top of Great Orme. A real experience and a must if you are on holiday in Llandudno. The park at the end of the line is great and you can spend hours exploring.

On parts of our journey up the weather was very windy but that did not spoil our view however on the way down the sun came out for us to have an even better view of the orme. The top station was very good with a cafe and several gifts shops for souvenirs. We feel the tramway was great value... More

I thought that the tramway ride and visitors centre were okay, but not really worth the £7 fee, sorry :( :( :(
