Take a Journey Back in Time

Built in 1926, the Babbacombe Cliff Railway has shuttled hundreds of thousands of holiday makers to and from Oddicombe Beach in over 84 years of service.

Surrounded by some of the most breathtaking scenery to be found in the UK, the Cliff Railway provides a vital and non-exhausting way for locals and holiday makers alike to soak up the peaceful atmosphere and take in the amazing views as they travel to and from the waters edge.
Throughout January and February 2017 the railway has been undergoing a major refurbishment including the manufacture of two brand new carriages which were delivered and successfully installed on Tuesday 21 February.
Because of this the railway has been closed since Christmas but will be open again in early March 2017 once all the work has been completed and full testing done.
