Bridgnorth Cliff Railway is a funicular railway that avoids a walk up the steep hill between the lower Bridgnorth town and the upper part of Bridgnorth town – the views are excellent. 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 easy to reach Bridgnorth Cliff Railway, in Shropshire, by train. Simply hop on a train to Kidderminster station and then it's a long way to walk! But we've included it here so we have a complete list. The nearest station is Kidderminster – so there, you can hop on the brilliant Severn Valley Railway and it'll take you all the way to Bridgnorth. Walk over the bridge by the station, continue into town and you'll find signs to the cliff railway.
