This is a fantastic way to see across Llandudno and the countryside round it. We had to queue to get on the cable car as it was busy but well worth the wait. Even if you pride yourself on your fitness and wouldn't find the walk a problem, it's a lovely little trip in the cable car.

On a sunny day there's no better way to get up the Orme than the cable car it's a bit of a climb to get to and doesn't run if it's windy but if you can get up there the view's are fantastic.

When the sky is clear you can see far and wide whilst traveling down the side of the Great Orme. A wonderful attraction for all ages to enjoy (if not a bit pricey), but make sure they are running before you make the trip to the top.

Delightful views in a gentle cable car ride. Need to check it's running as frequently cancelled for wind understandably.

Great fun with spectacular views. This 10 minute trip lets you look back at the bay with the Little Orme in the distance and then towards Conwy and the Irish Sea check times and openings.

We got the cable cars down the hill, having gone up on the tram. It would be a good idea in my opinion if the tram/cable car did a joint ticket as lots of people were doing the same as us. I also think it would be a good idea if debit/credit cards were accepted as we didn't have much... More

Now, I am very scared of heights and this experience I had to hold on but I refused to miss it! The view that was to behold when we went over the tree was amazing. I suggest a clear day as you can see as far as Anglesey!

I never wanted to go on the cable cars. When I was younger, i was too scared of heights, as i got older, i thought they can't be safe, they're so old! My friend eventually persuaded me to go on them, and I'm so glad I did. They're amazing. So relaxing. I never expected it to be so good. I... More
