Voted the 'UK's BEST Cliff Railway' and one of the BEST historic attractions in the UK (Which? Reader Poll 2020)
Tickets & Travel
The single tickets are purchased immediately prior to each trip and are not based upon timetables. The Cliff Railway operates continuously and waiting times are therefore minimal. We only accept contactless or chip and pin card payments, we are not currently accepting cash. Children under 4 travel free.
Pushchairs & Wheelchairs
Due to the narrow Victorian carriages, pushchairs and wheelchairs will need to be folded. Unfortunately we cannot accommodate mobility scooters or larger wheelchairs. Customers with particular requirements are advised to view our Accessibility Guide or contact us prior to visiting.
Dogs & Muddy Boots
Soggy Dogs & muddy walking boots are all welcome. Dogs will need to be on a lead and are required to ride inside the carriage. A small charge is made for larger dogs, guide dogs and lap dogs go free.
Gathering is as per the current Government guidance and we can accommodate groups of up to two households during travel (your support bubble counts as one household). We are not currently accepting advanced bookings or ticket sales for groups. Restrictions may alter but will follow Government guidance.
There are public car parks and some street parking in both Lynton and Lynmouth although Lynmouth has significantly less available parking and gets busy during peak seasons. Much better to park in Lynton and use us as the most beautiful park and ride option in the UK to the village of Lynmouth below. Where else in the country can you arrive in that much style?

The secret to avoiding queues - Sssshhh!
The Cliff Railway can be accessed at either the top station in Lynton or the bottom station in Lynmouth. At busy times the bottom station is very popular and queues can occur at peak times. To reduce waiting and avoid queues we recommend access via the top station Lynton in the afternoon or plan your visit earlier in the morning or towards the end of the day - but don't tell everyone!
Gradient, Steps & Access Guide
The access paths have a slight gradient but are manageable by most wheelchairs with assistance. The Cliff Top Cafe has level access with a small ramp and no steps.
There is a small step onto the Cliff Railway at the top station, and three small steps within each carriage with handrail. Due to the nature of the railway and its Victorian carriages most standard wheelchairs will not pass through the carriages unfolded, the carriages are 540mm wide at the narrowest point. Passengers will need to transfer from and fold their wheelchairs for travel and are personally responsible for loading and unloading wheelchairs from the carriages. Our drivers are unable to assist during this time due to social distancing requirements. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate mobility scooters or larger wheelchairs.
Dogs & Assistance Dogs
Dogs are always welcome to take their owners for a ride on the Cliff Railway. We do make a small charge for doggy travel (lap dogs occur no charge) and they must be kept on a lead and ride inside the carriage at all times. Assistance Dogs are permitted to travel for free. Water for dogs is provided in bowls at the site - woof woof.
Dog Waste Bins are located nearby in Lynton at the Town Hall and the Valley of the Rocks and in Lynmouth on the Manor, at Rock House and Blacklands Beach.
The Victorians didn't provide us with on site Public toilets. The closest are situated in Bottom Meadow Car Park and by the Town Hall in Lynton and The Memorial Hall and Lyndale Car Park in Lynmouth and also opposite the cricket field at the Valley of Rocks. Our Cliff Top Cafe WC is not currently open to the public.
