Babbacombe Cliff Railway

We would like to remind our customers that you will need to wear a face covering to travel on the Babbacombe Cliff Railway.

Babbacombe Cliff Railway provides a unique way to travel from the top of Babbacombe Downs to Oddicombe Beach.

Built in 1926 Babbacombe Cliff Railway has transported hundreds of thousands of people over the years. When you alight at the bottom you can relax on Oddicombe Beach, or wander around the FREE seasonal Visitor Centre. The beach is complete with beach café, open all year, along with seasonal bucket and spade shop, water sports and deckchair hire.

There’s no need to worry about the steep walk back up the cliffs – just board the next carriage up and let the Cliff Railway take the strain.

Oddicombe Beach is a hidden treasure and well worth a visit. A real family beach, it’s a safe and friendly environment with everything you could want for a great day out.

So, make sure that Babbacombe Downs and Oddicombe Beach are on your “to visit” list when you’re in the area. You won’t regret it.

For current opening hours,  please check the website.  The railway must close occasionally for essential maintenance work; advanced notice of this is usually given on the website and our social media.
