The children loved it. Very exciting and novel experience, really friendly staff and incredible views. Fast and good value. I should imagine it gets very busy in peak times but it's well worth the wait. No booking required.

Nice view and quick ride. May be 1-2 hours are sufficient for this attraction. If you go early morning no issue for car park and queue at cliff railway. You cannot buy return ticket, after coming down you have to pay again. I believe it was £3.50 for adult and £2.50 kids and £1 for dogs.

Beautiful unspoilt harbour with outstanding views from the hills above Lynmouth of the last of the Bristol Channel and start of the ocean on clear day seeing south/west Wales coastline. Plenty of eating places and Fish and chips restaurant with array of a gluten free menu. Bus tours and walks. Well worth a visit to step back when a seaside was not tarnished with mega shops etc.

Lynmouth is a stunning place. Get there earlyish to get parked in the main car park. The o street only has a 2 hour limit. The railway itself is small, it’s reasonably priced with great staff. One thing to note is the entrance to the carriage is quite narrow. Our pushchair was a bit of a struggle. Once on, the views up just get better and better. There’s a good view from anywhere. It’s amazing how long this ride is. It always feels safe, but can be a little jerky. Once at the top, the view is fantastic. There are places to get incredible views. It rained on our last visit, so didn’t get much chance to get the “proper “ camera out. Lynton is just a small quaint village, it’s a nice walk round with some nice shops.

This was certainly an experience. Not only only the journey through the lanes 🫣 but the whole experience. I'm not great with heights. Parking is a bit of a nightmare…but we eventually found a space. Dogs are welcome, big dogs like ours cost an extra £1. In fairness, it's a beautiful place to visit and staff were friendly. We only paid one way (no way was I paying to go down again on that cliff train!) We walked down which was very scenic but steep. There is a short walk on the road at the bottom which is a little bit dodgy as cars come down the hill quite fast. Overall worth visiting as it is a very beautiful place.
