Great Orme Cable Car

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.
