Experience the expanse of air, as you move smoothly and quietly upwards with a glorious panoramic view beneath you. Be captivated and enthralled by the lush greenery and the stunning beauty of Mother Nature. Look down and you see the Irish Sea stretched out shining and quivering. Take a trip in the Great Orme Aerial Cable Car.

The Llandudno Cable Car opened in summer1969 and has been a tourist attraction ever since. The cabins are painted in arresting colours of red, yellow, orange, light blue and purple.

From the cabin you can see the breath taking view of the Irish Sea over looking to Rhyl and the Isle of Man as well as the aesthetic view of the Snowdonia National Park.

As the cable car glides silently, it takes you from Happy Valley to the summit of the Great Orme, Llandudno, the little Orme, Conway Estuary are all spread spectacularly beneath. On the return journey you enjoy the astounding views of Anglesey, Puffin Island and the mountains of Snowdonia.

This cable car is the longest passenger car system in Britain.

It is an 18 minutes return trip and the cable cars move slowly and sedately so people who are scared of heights, can enjoy the peaceful ride as well. Being 670ft in the air is a great way to get to the top of the Orme.

  • Lovely day out with my 6 and 3 year old. Nice 10 minute trip up, a walk around at the top, little play park. Slightly pricey tho but enjoyed it.

  • Very exciting thing to do for both adults and children. Slow and relaxing ride with spectacular views. It's worth coming early just after 10am, as the queues get very long later in a day.

  • Lovely views, especially on a clear day, but very expensive these days and can't combine with the tram for a one up, one down option which many people would like.

  • A must do for anyone visiting was a great experience and some amazing views of the local area can see right across the beach and sea on a clear day loved it

  • Great experience .I will say it is lucky if you get a ride due to wind stopping it from running. Great views .Enjoyed taking plenty of pictures.
