Great Orme Tramway Llandudno

The Great Orme Tramway (Tramffordd y Gogarth) in Llandudno, North Wales first began operation in 1902 and is the only cable-hauled funicular tramway in Britain.

The Great Orme Tramway takes visitors to the coastal resort of Llandudno up to the 207m-high Great Orme from Llandudno Victoria Station to enjoy the views over Snowdonia and Anglesey on a clear day.

The trams run every 20 minutes, 7 days a week between late March and late October. There have been a few accidents on the line including ones in 2000 and 2009 and a fatal incident in 1932.
