About

The Historic Cliff Lift on Southend seafront, which has recently been restored as closely as possible to it's original 1912 format, has a valuable position in modern Southend, offering a practical and enjoyable way for people to gain access between the seafront and the Clifftown area.

The iconic structure, which is almost 100 years old, is one of only a few surviving funicular railways built to the unusual 4ft 6inch gauge format and is now Britain's shortest.

The cliff railway is not only a brilliant way to travel between the Seafront and Cliff top leading to the High Street but is a great place to enjoy the spectacular view.

During the summer season it will operate daily between 10am and 5.45pm and will cost 50p per trip.
