Great Orme is well worth the visit and the Great Orme tramway permits dogs to travel on board. On the summit there are numerous areas to walk a dog and a shop and cafe complex that allows dogs inside. My wife and I had a great fish and chips meal while we were there prior to the tram ride back... More

Unfortunately I had no idea, that tram is not runing out of season but next time i'm definitely taking a ride! The tram looks really nice and views on the very top of Great Orme are worth of it.

This ride consists of two lots of counter weighted cable tram systems. You go half way in one tram and the swap trams to go the rest of the way to the top. The views are magnificent. The tram also goes past the Great Orme Mines which are a "blast from the past".

Old fashioned tram was great for something to do and if you like scenery days, the views of Llandudno was beautiful. Have a fab time. Would do this again and you don't have to wait very long to get on.

Real old fashioned tram. Great views across Llandudno from the train as you go up the Great Orme. You change trains half way up. Better on a nice day as it gets windy on top. They travel very regularly so you don't have to wait long. Small information/museum and a cafe up there.

A step back in time, for those who remember Trams. It is the lazy way to get to the top of The Great Orme, instead of walking. You can always walk back down?or take the Tram. There are great views from the top and a Café and Gift Shop.

This is a great way to spend a few hours the tramway takes you to the top of Great Orme, there is a halfway stop so you can go and visit the Slate Mine, which was closed when we went. The views from the top are fantastic, there is a hotel with a tea room. a couple of gift shops... More
