Venue type: Outdoor

The Shipley Glen Cable Tramway is the oldest working cable tramway in Great Britain (cliff lifts excepted). Dating from 1895, the line was built to serve the local beauty spot of Shipley Glen near Saltaire in West Yorkshire. At nearly a quarter-mile in length, the woodland ride provides a pleasant alternative to the steep path.

A short walk brings a Cafe within reach as well as the rocks and woods of Shipley Glen. The bottom station allows access to Roberts Park and the River Aire and the delights of Saltaire with Salt's Mill and its famous Hockney Gallery.

As well as rides on the open trams, there is a small souvenir shop at the top station, selling sweets. There is a nostalgic Edwardian shop at the bottom station. The museum at the bottom station displays photos and memorabilia of the tramway as well as Shipley Glen. There are interesting pictorial displays and memories of the tramway and Shipley Glen in days gone by. The museum opens when the tramway is open and entry is free of charge.
