I think weather permitting what is not to like? It is set in the most stunning setting with amazing views of the coastline the pier and landscape. It is cheap enough at £17 per couple or £24 for 2 adults and 2 children return. It can be romantic,fun and exhilarating possibly frightening for some especially in the wind. There's plenty... More

A good alternative to the Tramway if you want to ascend the Great Orme. The views are magnificent on a bright, clear day.

Although the cable cars were a little cosy on a sunny day like it was it was a brilliant way to see the orme!

It takes about eight minutes to reach the top. It is so peaceful and offers stunning views. A lovely experience and only pennies dearer than a go on one of the sideshows on the pier.

We took a one way ride from the top of the great Orme to the bottom, very peaceful way to see spectacular views over all of Llandudno and the surrounding scenery. I definitely recommend it and enjoyed it more than the tram ride, which I took on the way up.

We took the tram up, and the cable car down from the Great Orme on our last day in Llandudno. A little bit of a wait to get on the cable car, but a really nice (and romantic) way to see the whole town and area.

the view and the peacefulness was great. But, at £8 for a one-way trip and £8.50 for a return I feel the pricing is unrealistic.

This was a brilliant cable car trip. We found it difficult to park near the station at Happy Valley so we paid £2.50 to drive the Great Orme toll road. Part way along the road divides and you can drive to the summit, a few hairpin bends but enjoyable! We parked at the summit complex car park and caught the... More
