I didn't get a chance to try the cable car but I wanted to. I was with 3 other friends and they did not want to try it. A bit pricey when already paid for the rail ride up there.

Walked up to the top .Took the cable car down then back up as the fare was only 50p more for the return. Well worth it the view over the area was amazing. Then we walked back down.

Tired cable cars, in need of sensitive decorating and renovating. Great views but not especially good value at £10 Worth checking out

Are babies allowed on the cable cars? I'd like to come with my 6 months old boy.

I am very sorry, but I just do not know. Perhaps a call to the tourist information in Llandudno before you start queuing up.

Operating times vary according to the weather conditions, wind in particular. On the day we visited the last car back down was at 3pm, which seemed early given that sunset was around 9:30pm. But we were told that the... More
