This is a unique, water operated cliff railway dating from 1890, joining the villages of Lynton and Lynmouth, some 500ft (152 metres) apart in height.
 
The Lynton and Lynmouth Cliff Railway has two cars which carry up to 40 passengers in each. Passengers are transported up the 500 foot cliff face on an 862 foot (263 metres) long inclined track.
 
The railway opened for passenger traffic on Easter Monday, 1890. It has been in continuous use since that date. One car ascends the cliff whilst the other descends, counterbalancing each other.
 
At North Walk just below Lynton top station there is a station halt which can be used if needed to offload large freight items.
 
The railway is now a listed monument and is one of the area’s most popular tourist attractions.
