Amazing views and friendly service. Ran like clockwork and amazing that such old technology can create such an experience. Enjoyed the trip from bottom to top and back again. Next time will take a picnic and stay on the Orme longer. Highly recommend it.

A nice little ride to the top of the orme, would recommend for people of all ages. Only problem is that the tram is very slow

Was very busy, unfortunately the upper part of the tram way was closed for maintenance (half term week???) which we weren't aware of until after tickets were purchased. Too many people waiting and extremely poorly organised. Waited in excess of 40 minutes so ended up...More

This "funicular" is two tramways in one. The lower section starts at the Victoria station, and runs along roads to the Halfway station. A short walk takes you to a second tram which climbs to the summit of Great Orme. These historic trams have no...More

We visited Llandudno on holiday and decided to go on the trams up to the Great Orme. Although the weather wasn't great, it was still a worth while trip. I really enjoyed it, and it also had amazing views of the town! I would recommend...More
