A lovely way to travel to the Great Orme. I have been on the tram in all weathers and always enjoy the beautiful views.

This tramway is based on the technology of the one in San Francisco. Very smooth and a great way to reach the top of the Great Orme. Views coming down are incredible.

Even the big queue disappeared quite quickly as they were running a 10-minute service for the bank holiday. Well worth going up - and we chose to walk back down.

By far the most interesting way to get to the summit of the Great Orme. The staff are friendly and accommodating, they help take wheel chairs and baby buggies off you for the ride. The views on the climb are stunning well worth a trip.

What a privilege it was to ride on these wonderfully preserved Victorian tram cars. We found it to be an absolutely delightful experience from start to finish. The only thing I might point out is that the seats are hard, but they are well shaped and the journey is relatively short. I am prone to back problems and they were OK for me.

Superb views of Llandudno's North shore crescent bay emerge as the tram car climbs up out of Llandudno toward The Great Orme. And the views across Conwy sands from the top of The Great Orme are very impressive too.

We took the tram car up and descended via the cable car for a different experience and to enjoy a different set of views. My personal recommendation would be to take a picnic up with you to enjoy on The Great Orme. (There is a restaurant on the top too, which we didn't use.)

Very highly recommended.
