A: The Peak Tram. The Peak Tram was first introduced in 1888. It was built for the daily commuters rather than a tourist attraction though nowadays majority of the passengers are tourists. The ride is quite steep and it climbs up to 396 metres above sea level. The panorama view of the harbor is spectacular. Ticket prices are here.
