As I love railways, I was always going to love this funicular. The staff were very friendly and helpful and explained exactly how it all works and some of the history. The views from the top were stunning. I'll definitely pay another visit and take another ride when I'm next in the area.

This is an excellent attraction, it is historic, traditional, enjoyable and the view from the top is worth the cost alone. I am amazed that anyone can say that it is expensive, if for no other reason then I am wondering what they are comparing the price to, it's not as though you have this kind of transport in every...

This is an excellent attraction, most people who put 'poor' reviews complained about the price and queuing, I thought the price was good, it is unique, historical and very enjoyable, as for the queues, I went in November so no queues at all but what are you expecting in the peak holiday season in a cab fit for about 10...

This lift is a real treat. Gives amazing views and is not over priced. Lovely staff too. The drive through Exmoor to visit just adds to it.

If you wait till the end of the day you will gifted with a most rewarding surprise. You can even have a ride just for yourself: the selfie ride! So all you hear is the breakers below and the rustling of the wind (plus your own sighing in admiration)

We arrived with our two dogs in tow and the staff were very friendly and most helpful...(it was only 2 days before closing for the year)... the trip up and down was uneventful and as my wife does not like heights that is something good, even the dogs did not seem to notice anything out of the ordinary.
