  • Really disappointed to walk all the way to the building only to find it's not running due to gusty winds at the top of the orme. A board at the bottom of the road might be helpful or how about...  more »
  • You reach the cable car station after a long steep climb. Then you see the sign of Cash Only!! The sign should have been down at the bottom with a warning about the climb.  more »
  • This is only cash place and there is no website that lets you know even its open or not. i went there three times and 3rd time it was open. Apart from that it is amazing experience. there are two points of this cable car. Most people buy the return ticket to take the cable car from llandudno pier to Great Orme summit complex (which is another great picnic point) spend the after noon their and return from summit complex cable car to the pier. There is no cable car returning from complex after 3 Pm. Ticket for adults is 11 and for kids 9 quids. family ticket costs 33 quids which contains 2 adults and 2 kids. Remember to take cash with you.
  • Absolutely loved it. On a beautiful sunny bank holiday weekend it was the highlight of our trip. A must when visiting North Wales. I wish I had more time in the area. Please note last return trip is 3pm which is very early on a summer's day. I wondered how you'd get back to your car at the top if you missed the last time.
