Lynton & Lynmouth Cliff Railway is a Unique Victorian Water Powered Lift. No family trip to the picturesque towns of Lynton and Lynmouth in North Devon would be complete without a ride on the famous funicular cliff lift. 

The area situated in the centre of the "Exmoor National Park" and nicknamed "England's Little Switzerland" a day out in Devon would not be complete without visiting here, one of the South West top attractions. 

It's the best and most exciting way to travel between these two historic towns and will be one of the highlights of the day - for mums, dads and all the family. 

Enjoy stunning views of Exmoor and the North Devon Coastline as you glide up and down the 862 foot length of track; from Lynmouth nestling at the foot of the cliffs to Lynton perched 500 feet above.

Cliff Top Cafe 
The Cliff Top Cafe is an ideal spot from which to admire spectacular views over Lynmouth bay and surrounding cliffs, and on a clear day the coast of South West Wales. Why not relax with a cream tea or cup of freshly made coffee or perhaps a light lunch?
