“Well worth a visit”
Review of Great Orme Tramway

Great Orme Tramway

Reviewed October 31, 2013

I thought that for the money this was a great little attraction. If you're into scenery and fresh air then this is definitely for you. Beware though that the steep uphill part at the beginning is a bit hairy for those of us scared of heights, hills and inclines (like me) and that you have to change trams half way up - not ideal for anyone with mobility problems.

We visited in September which meant it was a bit chilly but wrap up warm (or visit in summer!) and it's still a good ride up.

When we arrived half of the tram was shut for maintenance. We had driven to LLandudno especially for this so were more than disappointed. You could go to the halfway station and get a coach to the top but we opted not to.

The scenery from the top is incredible. Do take some warm clothes with you for the top. The weather can be quite different up there.

If you don't take the tram, you won't have the energy left to really explore great Orme. It has been lovingly restored and you have to admire their commitment.
