Saltburn Cliff TramwaySaltburn Cliff Tramway

Take a ride on Britain's oldest water balanced funicular, the Saltburn Cliff Tramway. In 1924 an electrically operated water pump was installed. The installation has been lovingly refurbished over the past decade restoring the Tramway to its former Victorian glory.

The Saltburn Cliff Tramway links the town of Saltburn with the only remaining pleasure pier on the whole of North East and Yorkshire coast.

The town of Saltburn hosts an annual programme of exciting family events and seasonal activities too.


The nearest drop-off point is outside the top station of the Cliff Tramway on Marine Parade however please be aware that the path from Marine Parade to the top station is sloped.

From the car park located on the Lower Promenade to the main entrance, there is flat level access.

There is a slight ramp up to enter the Trams from the main entrance on the Lower promenade. There is a slight ramp down to exit the Trams from the top station on the upper promenade.

Staff are on hand to provide assistance with any accessibility needs if needed.
