LLANDUDNO's giant ferris wheel has returned 'home' to the Pier. 

The 69-foot tall structure, dubbed the “Llandudno Eye” due to its likeness with the London landmark, left the town in November 2022. It went to Sheffield for the Christmas Market and then in early January, it went back to the location where it was manufactured, Italy, for routine maintenance.

It is returning to Llandudno Pier this afternoon (March 22) and if all goes to plan, riders will be able to enjoy the attraction from Saturday, March 25.

Paul Williams, general manager at Llandudno Pier Trading Limited, said: "Everyone on the Pier is extremely excited to have the wheel return home ready for the season. It is returning this afternoon and we are looking at operating Saturday.

"We look forward to welcoming everyone back to enjoy the spectacular Pier Wheel."

The £1million structure, which has been custom-made, opened in August 2021. Llandudno Pier owner Adam Williams commissioned Italian manufacturer Lamborghini to design the traditional wheel, which has 18 gondolas carrying six people each.


A new grill is coming to Llandudno Pier in the next few weeks. This will attach to the Fish and Chip shop that is returning next week at the front.

Paul added: "We are also installing a new grill and ice cream offering at the end of the Pier near the bar, which again will open in a couple of weeks."
