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 (telephone 01492 876413) is on the lower slopes above the Happy Valley and the entrance is reached by the paths round either side of the building. The following photos were all taken from the same car on a single upwards journey.

These are just some of the many magnificent views that can only be seen in this way as the cabins glide almost silently through the air.  Here soon after the start we look down on the delightful Happy Valley gardens and across the valley at the crags and cliffs of the Great Orme overlooking the sea.
