We’re On BBC Radio Devon Tomorrow (Friday 10th May)

What a week it’s been so far for us!

To add to the excitement, bright and early tomorrow morning (Friday 10th May), BBC Radio Devon will be broadcasting a segment of their Breakfast Show live from the Babbacombe Cliff Railway.

Tune in and listen to us at approximately 8:20am when we will be discussing all things Babbacombe Cliff Railway including our upcoming Cliff Railway Day.

Also listen out for another of the BCR team being interviewed during the Rick Edwards show.

Our Appearance On “Don’t Forget The Driver”- BBC2 10pm This Evening!

So today’s the day. Or rather tonight’s the night…..

We’re delighted to be appearing on BBC2 at 22:00 in “Don’t Forget The Driver” with the amazing (and very friendly when we met him) actor Toby Jones.

Whilst we only play a small part in the episode, you may recognise a familiar face at the Railway opening the carriage doors to Toby’s character, coachdriver Peter Green.

If you have visited our friends around the corner at the Babbacombe Model Village you may also recognise a few things in the episode. The “chase” scene in particular makes for amusing viewing.

It has been a lovely series to have been part of and it was a real pleasure for us to welcome Toby and the film crew last October.

Enjoy Episode 5 this evening everyone.

10am Opening Time on Tuesday 7/5/19

Please note that we will open at 10am rather than 9am on Tuesday 7/5/19. This is for routine maintenance work to take place before.

Many thanks for your patience and we look forward to your visit.

TEMPORARY CLOSURE DUE TO WEATHER CONDITIONS 17/4/19 9:15AM

17/4/19 9:15am

It’s a misty morning here in Babbacombe which unfortunately means that we are unable to run our carriages just for the moment.

When the mist lifts we will reopen but just for the moment we had had to close.

We will let you know as soon as that pesky mist has dispersed!

Many thanks for your patience until then.
