“The best way to visit the Great Orme”
Review of Great Orme Tramway

Great Orme Tramway
Ranked #5 of 101 things to do in Llandudno
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 16 July 2014

This attraction is 110 years old and still working to perfection. We took this fantastic mode of transport first to the halfway station so as to visit the copper mine (also very interesting, well worth a visit) then caught a later tram and continued up to the summit of the Great Orme. There is an exhibition centre and cafe, also an outdoor adventure play area for the kids. On a nice day from the top of the mountain excellent views can be seen all around. We had a nice walk around and then caught the tram back down to base.

Partly open carriages so you can experience the environment but it rained so we got a bit wet. Fare is £6 return or £4.40 single .Change half way, onto another train for the very steep final descent! This train is not affected by high winds like the cable -car.

We had a great time on this strange and unusual relic, it's a lovely trip up stupid inclines in near silence, the views from the summit are also superb, highly recommended!

We always ride on this every visit to Llandudno. A bit of living history and it saves a long climb up the Great Orme. Worth every penny!
