We got the cable cars down the hill, having gone up on the tram. It would be a good idea in my opinion if the tram/cable car did a joint ticket as lots of people were doing the same as us. I also think it would be a good idea if debit/credit cards were accepted as we didn't have much... More

Now, I am very scared of heights and this experience I had to hold on but I refused to miss it! The view that was to behold when we went over the tree was amazing. I suggest a clear day as you can see as far as Anglesey!

If in Llandudno a ride on the cable car is a must do activity for everyone. Old and young alike cannot fail to enjoy the ride above the trees and fells. The views are great.

The Chair Lift to the top of the Great Orme is a delight ! You get some fabulous views for camera or video and float above lovely scenery on the smoothest of runs. Even a friend who does not like heights could not wait to do it again. Absolutely safe. Then the top...view all of Snowdonia and the Irish Sea... More
