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.
