Great Orme Tramway offering half-price tickets to residents

THE Great Orme Tramway will dish out half-price tickets as part of its community weekend event. 

Residents of Conwy County will have the opportunity to ride the tramway for half price when visiting the attraction on October 29 and 30.

The Great Orme Tramway is marking its 120th anniversary this year. 

Britain’s only cable-hauled tramway opened in 1902. The Tramway carries approximately 200,000 passengers to the summit of the Great Orme every year, which stands at 679 feet. 

Luke Stevenson, tramway manager, said: “The community weekend is a way to thank local people for their support and reconnect with locals that have not visited for a while. I even know people who live minutes away who have never been on The Great Orme Tramway.

“We hope that people will take this opportunity to visit this unique attraction in our own back yard.

“We are looking forward to welcoming local residents, and offering the community an experience where they can sit back and enjoy the scenery.”

Return tickets for the weekend’s promotion will be £4.25 for adults and £3 for children aged 3 to 16. Children under three travel free.

Residents should bring proof of their address in Conwy County to be eligible for the offer.

The Tramway is open from 10am until 5pm, with the last return tram departing at 4.20pm.
