The first place you should visit when you come to Llandudno, 'Queen of the Welsh Resorts'. The tramway is actually a funicular railway - a system where two tramcars are moved up and down hill by cable. As one comes down the Great Orme it helps to pull the other one up using a system of counterbalanced weights. It's one of only two tramways in Europe which operate on public streets, and this year it celebrates its 100th birthday. It operates from March to October, and averages 5,000 trips per year, transporting 120,000 passengers. As the tramway takes you up the Great Orme you will find yourself enjoying a thrilling view of one of Britain's finest Victorian seaside towns. Llandudno's long crescent promenade, wide shopping streets, sweeping sands and wealth of family attractions make it a perfect destination for a short holiday, weekend break or day trip.
