“Expensive but quaint”
Review of Great Orme Tramway

Great Orme Tramway
Ranked #4 of 102 things to do in Llandudno
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 April 2018

An interesting way to travel, but wrap up as the trams have no glass in the 'windows' and the halfway station was like a wind tunnel between platforms. Interesting historical items there, though. Slow enough to marvel at and snap the views on the way, but it's only about 20 minutes from bottom to top. Staff helpful when I thought I had left a bag at the top.

Thank Peter B

Not badly priced. Journey up and down great views for pictures. Only thing is could do with windows as very cold when windy. Other than that staff friendly and really good.

We went with our 3 children (4) (12) (14), The Views on the way up (and down) are brilliant!. When you get to the ‘summit’ there are a few things to do, mini/crazy golf is one of them, cafe is well stocked. However whilst there is a cash machine at the top, it’s prob best to take cash with you beforehand as not all the services up there have card machines.

Terrible. Rip off. Bad attitude. AVOID.
Completely over rated, and poorly run.
Save your money, you'll need it at the summit because it's a rip off there as well.

This is by far the easiest way to get to the top of the Great Orme and fun too. Great views from the top and good coffee at the cafe. Not to be missed!
