Hi All

We have been having intermittent issues with the running of the Railway since the torrential rain of yesterday.

Unfortunately as a result we have had to take the decision to close for the moment.

As you would expect, our staff are working hard behind the scenes to enable us to reopen ASAP and we will keep you posted with progress.

As we have had to say rather a lot this week, thank you for your patience and we will update you again as soon as we can.

Best wishes

Team Babbacombe Cliff Railway

Slightly Later Openings Monday 24/8/20 & Tuesday 25/8/20

Due to a couple of minor pieces of maintenance work being required on the track, we will be opening slightly later than usual on Monday 24/8/20 and Tuesday 25/8/20.

Instead of opening at 10am we will open between 10:30am and 11am.

Thanks for your patience everyone and we look forward to seeing you soon.
