Not much can be said about a tram car the idea is climb aboard at the bottom, the top car is being loaded at the same time, about a 30 to 45 second ride with a panoramic view of the bay on the way up. You pay as you exit.
This route saves a long winding walk to the top, You have to be aware of the times the tram operates.

As you expect really, a lot of fun(icular) for all the family. I tend to use the one by the Spa more, but this one looks more attractive to the eye and is usually always full. Friendly staff all round.

The only way to get back up the cliff with a wheelchair, saved a strenuous climb and only took a few minutes

An experience, evidenced by a queue to go up. You wouldn't have to wait long though as the cars leave pretty frequently. £1 a trip is very reasonable.
