This fascinating water powered funicular tramway, built in 1884, connects the Victorian Town of Saltburn-by-the Sea with the promenade, pier and beach 211 feet below.  Operated by water and gravity the skill of the brakeman ensures a smooth passage up and down the steep cliff, and saves you the 173 steps!  It is like stepping back in history to a bygone age.  The appropriately attired operators are only too willing to explain the fascinating Victorian engineering and make this an experience, rather than just a journey!

As you travel the short ride on the tramway you will enjoy the panoramic views of Saltburn Beach.

We can accommodate most wheelchairs and mobility scooters.  We are dog friendly, but merely ask, for safety reasons, that dogs are kept on a lead.

Enjoyed by all the family come along and appreciate the nostalgia and our unique contribution to the pride of the wonderful Victorian setting that is Saltburn.

Opening times vary during the year, so please refer to our Facebook page for up to date opening hours. During the Summer School Holidays we are open daily 10:30 to 18:00.
