If you want to get to the top get on board the funicular tramway. Certainly takes the effort out of going uphill.

A very old funicular type tramway. Only takes about a minute to get to the upper town. A bit expensive for what it is. But it a tourist attraction after all

This is such an easy way to get from the upper town to the promenade and back again. It rekindle child hood memories. After walking along the promenade it well worth the fare not to have to walk up a lot of steps.

This is a must fantastic Victorian Engineering, and a welcome rest for those weary legs when walking round for the day and when you get to the top a lovely tea room for that well earned cuppa.
