Worth a go...

Second time here in Llandudno, but it's a must when here to get up to the top of the Great Orme by cable car - and I dont like heights either, but its well worth a trip.

We drove an hour to get to Llandudno (we stayed in Bala). I am so pleased we did as there are so many things to see/do in Llanddno. The cable cars were great. Paid £41 for 3 adults and 3 children (return) (children 2-14). The views are amazing over the sea, mountains and the pier. Well worth the trip. Can... More

Had to pay adult price for my 15 year old son as they count CHILDREN over the age of 14 as an adult! We enjoyed the great views from the cable car.

Loved the cable car, felt safe and really enjoyed the scenery. Well worth it to get to the top of the Great Orme, although it was very windy it was worth it for the view. Café and shop at the top.

Someone stopped me today asking if the cable cars were running. They are weather dependant but as I said to this gent, well worth waiting for if you can as the views are fantastic.

Lovely ride to the top , but so overpriced. Also don't be thinking you will save money by riding only one way. They have covered that and is only a few pounds less to do so. My kids loved it though and the view at the top is great. It is worth the trip , but such a shame so... More

Well worth doing the ride up, staff very friendly and the trip is good, a tad expensive i thought with what they charge and the 1/2 hour que to get on then they must make alot of profit which could be spent on modernising the cars as its not a patch on the Scottish one

My husband and I went on the cable car during our recent visit to Llandudno and it was great fun. You get a fantastic view all the way up to the Great Orme but if you don't like heights then you better hold on tight! I was a little scared at first but it soon passes. The price is a... More

Unfortunately this is very weather dependent and we waited 3 days before the wind dropped enough to go on the cable cars. It was worth the wait though as the views as spectacular. It isn't too far to walk up but the cable cars are such a novelty.
