    Not clear if this correct spot for it, being in the wales, however its the only spot I can see from Trams, so here goes..

    We spent last week in North Wales, on the way back we dropped round Llandudno to take a ride on The Great Orme Tramway.

    Was up Wales last week with my work(adults with learning disabilities ) and went on this tram, the staff were very friendly and there's a nice history at halfway point, great views at top of the summit and on the way back down. Would recommend to all family's to have a ride. Theres a gift shop/cafe up the top and the great town of Llandudno at bottom :) I will be going again next year.

    I thought it was quite reasonable worth the money if you don't want to walk lol I got a offer with residents with me and the staff were quite helpful
