Lynmouth & Lynton Cliff Railway


The Lynton & Lynmouth Cliff Railway is the world's highest & steepest fully water powered railway and offers an amazing and unforgettable experience for all ages.

Opened in 1890, the steep track rises 500 feet above Lynmouth Bay to provide stunning views of the Exmoor coastline. It remains the UK's only fully water powered railway and one of only three examples left in the world.

Our Grade II listed Cliff Top Café perched high on the cliff top is perhaps the most beautiful location for a Cream Tea in the Westcountry. Relax and enjoy a range of freshly prepared sandwiches, homemade cakes, light lunches and vegetarian options to eat in or take away.

Explore Lynton & Lynmouth’s range of secluded riverside wooded walks, beaches, shops, restaurants, pubs & galleries to visit. Both the Cliff Railway and the Café are dog-friendly and offer complimentary dog treats.
