“A great way to get to the top”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

What a lovely way to get to the top of the Great Orme. Well worth the trip. Make sure you stop at the half way point to go to the Mine. Its very easy to miss out on and the Mine was probably the best part of the day for us.

Another tip, be sure to buy a return ticket. A local pointed out to us that the cost of a single ticket is not much different to a return. The tram staff won't tell you this so you end up paying lots more buying 2 singles.

“A lovely ride on the Great Orme Tram”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

You trundle up the Great Orme on these trams which are open sided and free to the elements, so wrap up warm

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles 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.

“Shut for maintenance”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

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.
