“west cliff lift”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

the cliff lifts are amazing, and very old! We went to the top of the cliff in the lift with our two year old grand-daughter, she thought it was great fun, at the top you get out and walk up a little further, and get the most fantastic views, right out bto sea, or look down over the whole of hastings, and beyond, great place to fly a kite, picnic or just stroll.

“Fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

A quick side trip up the cliff provided stunning views. Cabin of train is new, very clean. The whole trip takes only a few minutes but adds a wonderful dimension to this part of Hastings.

“Save your legs, take the cliff railway!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

If you want to go up the cliff to the castle for example then take the cliff railway (the one next to the old town) It doesn’t cost much and only takes a minute or two. There is a cafe at the top station which serves good food at reasonable prices and you can sit outside and look out over Hastings. It is a marvel as to how they actually built the railway! Fascinating!
