“Group visit Thurlaston Camp”
Reviewed 11 August 2014 via mobile

Had really good time at Aberystwyth Cliff Railway. Took 30 odd adults and young people up the cliff for the morning and lunch at the cafe. Lots to do, good food and staff very friendly and helpful.

“40 degree climb in a rail car !”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

This piece of history is perfectly preserved. The railway is so steep that carriages have stairs in them. It's about a 10-15 minute ride up and down the cliff face. There is a nice restaurant at the top when you arrive. The views are breathtaking.

“Majestic Panorama”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

A visit to Aberystwyth isn't complete without a trip on the Victorian Cliff Railway.

The longest funicular electric cliff railway in Britain, it has been transporting visitors to the summit since 1896.

Be sure to visit the Camera Obscura for spectacular views of the town, Cardigan Bay, and on a clear day 26 mountain peaks.

Highly Recommended - Excellent Value for Money

“Up in the clouds”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

A real experience. Could do with a little painting to present better, but the views are wonderful. Cafe also nice, I wonder how they cope when there are crowds there.

“Great views”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

Catching the tram to the top is worth a trip for the great views. There's also a few things to do up top such as eat at the cafe and go bowling.
