Children loved this railway. Staff were friendly and seemed to take genuine interest. Nice trip along seafront seeing a number of local attractions. Quite pricey for a short ride but kids were happy and kept asking to go back on.

We took a single trip to go to the castle but unfortunately the funicular wasn’t working... The children enjoyed the ride, but I felt it was a little expensive for a big family.... The whistles and tunnel through the building were fun...

This is a fun little train. Front the seafront it passes through the fishermen's huts where they sell their fish to the East Hill Lift. Great for young and old alike.
