This is a must do activity when you visit this part of the world. The cable car journey greets you with mesmerizing views of the city, hills and crystal clear waters. We were lucky to have a bright and sunny day and the whole journey was a visual treat.

Meant to be open until 31st October 2018. I went there at 11am on Wed 24th Oct 2018 and place was closed. I later found out that there had been a storm a couple of weeks earlier that caused damage. There were no notices on the cable car station (near the pier) and nothing on the website. Also if you call their number the phone just rings and rings with no answer message. Very poor management. Very disappointing as I had taken some overseas visitors there and the cable car ride was a big part of the attraction of going to LLandudno.

The only drawback was waiting for it to open, about 15 minutes late. The views are stunning and we really enjoyed the longest cable car ride in Britain one mile.

When we went on Saturday 29th September we headed up on the cable car. We asked to pay for a return but was charged single and to only pay £1.50 when we want to come down. Which we thought was strange as normally they take return payments at the bottom but we got on anyway! When we arrived at the top a big sign said last cable car 2pm. So we quickly had a drink and a look around before heading back to the cable car which had closed due to high winds! The wind didn’t feel any stronger to me but I understand that if it has to close for our safety then fine, but at least when I’m paying tell me that there is a chance of early closure giving me the option not to use it. I just feel that they took my money to get us up there not caring about customer service! All they had to say was due to the wind we may close early! I would’ve gone via the train! Money grabbers and won’t ever be using the cable car again! It’s no Isuzu’s about closing it’s about not telling customers !

It was a lovely sunny day and we really enjoyed it, expected it to be blowing a gale but it was quite mild. Loved the sign of sheep droppings under the shelter of the tram car garage. Shows they shelter there at night, bless them, they`re not daft!

Views exceptional
Cable car experience itself wonderful
BUT we caught cable car late in afternoon & knew we could not return on it as winds were predicted so our time at top would be a few minutes only if we opted for return price ticket... Naturally we purchased 2 one way tickets..... We are from Australia so won’t be coming here during the year ... to take advantage of high cost ticket £10 one way ( for a year’s use)
£10.50 return is quite peculiar... WHY???

Drove out to Llandudno largely to take a trip up in the cable car, but it was closed. No information displayed as to why. Weather was great. Couldn't get out of bed? Who knows? Try your best to find out if they are actually open before you make the trip!

We took the cable car from the top to the bottom. There was no queue at the top but the queue from the bottom to return took 70 minutes to transverse. Tip: When you reach the top of the steps to the approach slope you have 60 - 70 minutes to wait.

Went in the morning and there was a bit of a queue. It was cash only due to WiFi not being great but a lady came down the queue to tell people and let them know where they could get some cash from. My daughter was very nervous but said it was amazing when she got to the top. Only two people were allowed in each car due to it being abit windy. Much better to get a return ticket as only 50p extra
Great views on the journey and at the top. Especially as such good weather, although quite breezy!
