What a fantastic experience, you've got to try it.it helped to see areas below that you may want to visit on foot. When the sky is clear you can see the Isle of man and the lakes.

We went up on the cable cars and believe the pricing is reasonable for the attraction. Although 50p difference between a single and return is a bit odd. The views are out-standing and make the trip worthwhile. The staff were very profesional and polite.

Not the cheapest attraction! However I can imagine the running costs are high! Amazing views! The only negative that I believe the owners should take on board is that the staff are a little unfriendly! We also had to wait for ages in line. The...More

We parked at the top of the Great Orme. Sorry I can't remember the exact cost, but it was pay and display with a range of times and prices. There is some street parking in the town, but I find it's usually very busy... More
