“Scenic Views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

This is an excellent way to see Llandudno at its best with some quite spectacular views from the Tramway.

It's a very pleasant ride up and probably the best way to get to the top of the Great Orme and well worth the visit.

Not much at the top, but on a nice day it would be pleasant enough to have a good walk around and have a cuppa before going back down.

“Interesting!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

We took the tram up to the Great Orme, and as the tram slowly climbed up, we had some great views of the promenade and houses behind us. A one way ticket is more expensive, but if you like to experiment then I would recommend taking the tram up and the cable car down!

“Wonderful time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

Travelling on this tram is like going back in time...you can start at either end, the top or the bottom and you can go half way or all the way...you can take your dogs on here as well as we have done many times. The views are stunning across the bay and well worth the money it costs to buy a ticket. I am not sure if the tram runs all year or not but it certainly does in the summer months and it gets very busy.
