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 90 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 spectacular views as they travel to and from the water’s edge.
The Cliff Railway is run by The Babbacombe Cliff Railway CIO which is registered as a charity. The board of directors is made up of local people who generously give their time as volunteers. Our remit is to protect and preserve the railway for the enjoyment of future generations
We are open 7 days a week. The last car up is at 4.45pm, the last car down is at 4.40pm and a warning bell is rung 30minutes and 15 minutes before the last car of the day. See opening times page for details
Babbacombe Cliff Railway operates on a cashless basis and all payments must be made by card, contactless preferred.
