Bournemouth’s three famous cliff lifts operate every day between Easter and the end of October. They offer easy access from the beach to the cliff tops as well as stunning views of the coast. Running on tracks, the cliff lifts are actually classed as light railways so jump on board for the most unusual railway journey of your life.
The West Cliff Lift built in 1908, links the seafront with the Bournemouth International Centre| the South Coast’s premier venue for entertainment shows and exhibitions.
The East Cliff Lift, also built in 1908, links the Russell Coates Art Gallery & Museum| with the beach. The museum and art gallery is free to enter and is open every day except Mondays. The East Cliff Lift features a small heritage display in the top toll house.
The Fisherman’s Walk Cliff Lift, built in 1935, links the beach with a great cliff top café and children’s play area.
