Hitch With Today’s Re-Opening

Hi All

The staff arrived happy and excited for the first day of re-opening early this morning and discovered an unexpected hitch which unfortunately means that we will not be re-opening today as anticipated.

This comes as a real blow to us because we are all desperate to transport you to the delightful Oddicombe Beach and back.

Please bear with us and as soon as we have further news we will update you all.

In the meantime, please continue to stay safe.

Team Babbacombe Cliff Railway.

Great News- We’re Re-opening 6/7/20!

We’re delighted to confirm we’re FINALLY re-opening again from 10am tomorrow (Monday 6th July).

Please note the new ways we will be running as detailed below.

We look forward to seeing you again- it’s been a while!




Re-opening Update



Regretfully we are experiencing issues with final testing so won’t be opening tomorrow.

We’re as disappointed as you about this so please accept our apologies.

We will bring you more information as we have it concerning re-opening.

Sorry for any disappointment.

July 2020 Re-Opening Details

Hi All

Many thanks for your goodwill whilst we have been closed during the recent period.

We’re delighted to share with you that we aim to reopen on Saturday 4th July 2020 at which point will be operating within the current Government guidelines.

We are completing final testing of the Railway and will update you by the end of the day tomorrow (Friday 3rd July) to confirm that we will reopen on Saturday.

As you will appreciate, things will have to run differently to previously so please see the attached information.

We plan be running daily from 10am until 5:30pm but due to anticipated increased queueing times, please allow up to 2 hours at the end of each day for your journey.

Should you have any operational queries, please contact our colleagues at our Top Station.

We look forward to seeing you all again soon and appreciate your patience when you visit.

Best wishes

Team Babbacombe Cliff Railway
