Enjoy a ride on the Llandudno Cable Car during your visit to the beautiful resort.
Opened on 30 June 1969 as the longest passenger cable car system in Britain, this unique experience continues to be one of town’s most popular attractions.
As the Llandudno Cable Cars glide silently from Happy Valley to the summit of the Great Orme, 679 feet up, you can take in the jaw-dropping panoramic views of the Bay of Llandudno, the Little Orme, the Conwy Estuary and miles out over the Iris Sea. And then look down on the beautiful gardens of Happy Valley or glimpse the action at the Llandudno Ski & Snowboard Centre.
The distance to the summit is just over a mile and the leisurely journey takes about nine minutes on an endless steel rope.
The Llanduno Cable Cars are painted in red, yellow, orange and light blue making them a colorful addition to the landscape of the Great Orme Country Park.
The highest point from the ground is around 80 feet and nine pylons support the cable.
Things To Do at The Great Orme Summit
Once at the summit, there are more spectacular views to enjoy.
Anglesey, the mountains of Snowdonia, Puffin Island and beyond are all visible.
You can explore the Great Orme by following one of the many footpaths.
Call into the Great Orme County Park Visitor Centre where interactive and audio-visual exhibits describe the Great Orme’s history, geology and wildlife.
You can also buy a selection of walking and nature trail leaflets.
The Great Orme Summit Complex, once owned by boxer Randolph Turpin, has a restaurant, café, bar and shop in addition to an adventure playground and Rocky Pines Adventure Golf.
