We are pleased to confirm that today saw the start of trading from food vans on Oddicombe Beach. These are currently replacing the service previously provided by the Café which unfortunately fell victim of the storms earlier this year. The vans will be providing a number of items including Burgers, Hot Dogs, Breakfast Baps, Ice Creams etc.
On Monday 16th June 2014, we celebrated the wedding of Steve and Laura. Both stations and carriages were beautifully decorated by Fiesta Red Florists of St Marychurch. The Bride, her father and attendants were transported on the Cliff Railway to the Bottom station, where guests eagerly awaited their arrival. The marriage vows were taken in the carriage and the couple made their grand exit to the beach accompanied by the music ‘Time of my life’. Steve and Laura chose to cut their cake and share champagne with family and friends on Oddicombe Beach. The weather was perfect and we all thoroughly enjoyed the day.
We are pleased to let you know that both hot and cold drinks are available during the usual opening hours of our Visitor Centre on Oddicombe Beach. Opening hours for the Visitor Centre are daily from 10:30am until 15:30pm wherever possible. You can even watch a film inside whilst you enjoy your drink!
This Easter Sunday, 20 April, Babbacombe Cliff Railway is offering a selection of fun Easter crafts for children. This special event, which will run from 10am to 4pm, is called Babbacombe Bunny’s Easter Crafts. Children are invited to go along to the Cliff Railway and get crafty with glitter, glue and all sorts of exciting bits and pieces.
Once a creation has been made, it’s off to find the Babbacombe Bunny who will be giving all hard-working children an Easter Egg (while stocks last). There’s no charge for this event it’s just a special Easter treat for children travelling on the Cliff Railway that day.
When the powerful storms in February battered the Cliff Railway Visitor Centre on Oddicombe Beach some contents were lost to sea and others were rescued in a night-time operation by volunteers. This incredibly popular attraction at the far end of the beach was then been boarded up until the worst of the weather had passed and it could be dried out and made safe. Now, after a lot of hard work, the Visitor Centre will be open to the public once again from Monday 14 April and it’s hoped that lots of people will go down to Oddicombe Beach this Easter to see the transformation.
In the meantime, in the run-up to Easter keep up to date with the whereabouts of the Babbacombe Bunny by following its antics on the Cliff Railway Facebook page at www.facebook.com/babbcliffrail
