“Unique experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2012

A unique experience on an authentic and well maintained cliff Railway. Excellent views of the River and Bridgnorth Low Town as you travel up or down. Kids will love it. £1.20 adult p/p return trip is very reasonable IMO.

“Fun day out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2012

We decided to go to bridgnorth for the day as its an historical town and it's exactly the type of day out me and my wife enjoy. Although it's not technically a castle than plinth of stone thats left from it the information about the history and the surrounding is superb. The Cliff railway is a joyfully plesant experience and brilliant value for money and me and my wife not being as young as we once were got to enjoy low town without walking up and down the hills as the ticket is a return so even better. My only concern would be not a great deal to do for young families and couples that have no historical interest.

“Vintage, but short and sweet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2012

Very authentic but restored cliff railway. Takes 14 on a single 1 minute trip up the cliff. Only return fares. View of the river is a bit restriced by sides to the track but it beats walking up the streets to reach the centre of the town.

“Very welcoming.”

Travel up and down the cliff railway with my dog. Love the views and the little journey back in time up the cliff. The trams are original and havent been "pimmped" it is always simply a treasured expirience
