Details

The Aberystwyth Electric Cliff Railway opened in 1896 operating on the water balance system but since 1921 a powerful electric motor and 2 high tensile steel cables have hauled the carriages at a stately 4 miles an hour. This gives you time to enjoy the panoramic views as you climb to the summit station and marvel at the Victorians ingenuity.

Opening details

The Cliff Railway is open from 10am to 5pm, 7 days a week from April to October, and often later (till 6pm) during the high season.
Out of season, the trains run to a limited timetable.
