You cannot visit Llandudno without doing the cable cars. As we went on a cold and windy day we were worried it would be a bit rough but it was so peaceful and serene with great views.

I plucked up the courage to go on the cable car. I was so glad I did it was brilliant. Bit windy but worth it for the views and experience

Claiming to be the longest cable car ride in the UK this journey certainly has truly amazing views of the whole area. The adult tickets are £10 return (cash only) for a trip that is about 10 minutes each way. However the views are outstanding....More

With a quick route to the summit, the cable cars provide an outstanding vista of the bays and town of Llandudno. Relaxing and enjoyable but not cheap. Word of advice, leave the push chair in the car.

Great views on the way up and down...Daughter (8) wasn't scared even as we climbed and the cable car went over its links(not sure that's the right name!) Not overly expensive and definitely an experience. Would do again.

The cable cars are a great experience and lovely way to get to the summit of the Orme, however the queues in summer can be ridiculously long. Bighly recommend out of season. Safe enough even on a windy day if you're feeling brave!!!

The cable cars were not open when we went a couple of weeks ago. I think they are closed now as its end of season.
