Have been to Llandudno many times but never up cable cars, went up Great Orme last Saturday and waited for cars to run but did not run as too windy felt let down, but the next day we saw them running while about and grabbed the opportunity, really worth the experience.

What a great way to get up Great Orme. Relaxing and an excellent way to see the views in a novel way. Accessible to most so easier than walking up! Nice staff you may have to wait a bit at busy times.

Take the tram up (£6 adults) and the cable car down (£9 adults). The ride is safe, fun and on a bright sunny day like we experienced exhibits terrific views of Llandudno, The Great Orme, Pier & it's surroundings. Well worth a visit.

I have to admit I'm not sure who was more scared me (34 years old) or my twins aged 6 lol. Brilliant fun and the views are amazing. Nice little park at the top and cafe. Kids enjoyed chasing the sheep and climbing the hills.

My kids and I love the Great Orme Cable cars. It feels a bit like a trip to an earlier age - I remember cable cars at fairs. You get incredible views, a smooth ride (it's high!!) and it spares you all that huffing and puffing up the hill. In my book much more fun than the tram.

£10 per adult, return (cash only!) seems a bit pricey. But the views are quite nice. Old fashion style cars, good for a bit of nostalgia.

We had a great trip on the cable cars over Llandudno. Bit pricey, £29 return for family of 4 and £1 for dog. They don't take card either, so all cash. Quick tip, there was a shop and ice cream place as we walked from the pier and the ice cream looked amazing. As usual great day out with the... More

I suffer slightly from vertigo and the ride up threw me into a panic on my first trip over a year ago. This time I knew what to expect and had no problems enjoying the spectacular scenery. My brother however, who was travelling with 3 young children went very pale on the ride up and needed some persuading to take... More
