We visited yesterday with two young toddlers. The railway is immaculately kept and is just like being back in time. The views are spectacular and the staff super friendly. Especially helpful with the pushchair! Thanks.

Had a lovely afternoon in Bridgnorth and the cliff railway was the icing on the cake , useful too as a very steep walk to high town, the wonky castle is close to the top station as well

Quirky and unusual form of transport ,not many of these about so take advantage of this fantastic piece of history if you are in the Black Country.

We love Bridgnorth and this is one of those things that should be experienced at least once. The walk from the Low town to the High town is quite steep and this is a bargain at £1.60 return.

A small rarity these days and a break for tired feet after a long day exploring the lovely town of Bridgnorth

£1.60 return for travel between lowtown and hightown. Worth the money just for the experience of using something entwined in Bridgenorth history.

Thank Superbaggie

There are plenty of restaurants - chain and otherwise - in a relatively small area - you'll most likely be able to find something you like.
