About Aberystwyth Cliff Railway

The Aberystwyth Electric Cliff Railway opened in 1896 operating on the water balance system but since 1921 a powerful electric motor and 2 high tensile steel cables have hauled the carriages at a stately 4 miles an hour. This gives you time to enjoy the panoramic views as you climb to the summit station and marvel at the Victorians ingenuity.
