Attraction Information

Great Orme Aerial Cable Cars
The Cable Car from the Happy Valley to the Great Orme Summit is, at over one mile each way, the longest Aerial Cabin Lift in the United Kingdom. It was built in 1969 and fully overhauled in 2006.
The four seater cars are carried on an endless cable over two miles long and which weighs over 17 tons. The lower cable car station is on the lower slopes above the Happy Valley and the entrance is reached by the paths round either side of the building.
Choose return (18 minute ride) or single from Happy Valley or the summit, where there is a cafe. Before your return journey enjoy spectacular views of Anglesey, Puffin Island and the mountains of Snowdonia. Or explore the many delightful walks over the Great Orme with its nature trails and prehistoric remains.
