Attraction Information

  • Railway and Transport Attractions icon Railway and Transport Attractions

Suitable for all ages

Venue type: Indoor

Unlike some resorts that boast more than one funicular railway, at Hastings the two railways could not be more different despite the fact that they were both originally designed on the water balance principle.

The East Hill railway is a far more striking addition to the town, simply because it can actually be seen! This was cut into the face of the cliff, whereas the West Hill railway is largely hidden in a tunnel dug through the cliff.

The East Hill Lift (as it's locally known) provides access to Hastings Country Park which overlooks the Old Town and Rock a Nore. The lift provides views over the Stade, home to the largest beach launched fishing fleet in Europe.
