It was very windy and only got more windy/colder as we traveled up so be prepared. The Tram is similar to an inclined plane in the fact that as one Tram is going up, the other is coming down and they pass each other midway....More

We were lucky to choose a beautiful June day. The journey on Britain's only cable-hauled public road tramway is excellent as are the carriages. Don't miss the Kashmiri goats about half way up. Once at the top, there is a large pub with extensive outside...More

If you are in Llandudno, this is well worth a visit. Every 20 minutes a tram leaves so you never have to wait long. The views are breath-taking too so keep your camera ready.

For all who go to Llandudno its got to be a "must do" It's interesting, and the view is breath-taking. Definitely the way to "run a railway" Try going to the top on the tramway and walking down.

It is less than 10 minutes walking distance from the pier if that helps - but slightly uphill
