The Cliff Railway 
 
An amazing experience for all ages, muddy boots & dirty paws are welcome too! 
 
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 railway is a fully working listed heritage monument, and is the steepest fully water powered railway in the world. With no need for electrictity, gas or diesel the Lynton & Lynmouth Cliff Railway remains the UK's only fully water powered railway and one of only three examples left in the world. 
 
 
The world's highest & steepest fully water powered railway!
