Lynton & Lynmouth Cliff Railway

This historic Victorian railway opened in 1890 and has connected the twin towns of Lynton & Lynmouth ever since. The 862 feet of track rises 500 feet with an impressive gradient of 57% providing stunning views across Lynmouth Bay. The two cars, connected by hauling cables, operate on a simple balancing principle. Water from the West Lyn River fills the 700 gallon tank of the top ‘docked’ passenger car. Water from the lower car is then discharged until the heavier top car descends and pulls the lower car up the incline. Speed is controlled by the driver using the ‘Deadmans’ Handle’, a braking system engineered and patented for this railway in 1888, and the 19th century forerunner of modern train braking systems. With no need for electricity, gas or diesel to re-pump the water to the top station the Lynton & Lynmouth Cliff Railway is the UK’s only fully water powered railway, a listed heritage monument, and a superb example of Victorian engineering.

Advanced notice that the Lynton & Lynmouth Cliff Railway and the Cliff Top Cafe will not open until 12:30 on Wednesday 19th June 2024.
This is as a mark respect, and to allow our staff to attend the funeral of much missed local lady Bet Wilde.
Thank you for your understanding.
Rest in Peace Bet

August 9th our Managing Director and Lynmouth Coastguard, Ashley Clarke, is doing a sponsored sky dive, to raise funds for the wonderful Fern Centre in Barnstaple.
The Fern Centre supports those going through treatment for cancer and their families in a non-clinical setting. This work is funded by donations and would not be possible without them.
