Aberystwyth Cliff Railway is a funicular railway that avoids a walk up the steep West hill between the town and the views and cafe on top. It’s historic too, and a much more enjoyable way of getting up or down than the paths! Funiculars have operated in Europe since 1862, and in Britain since 1875. It's one of two funicular railways in Hastings.
