Have used East cliff railway previously but this weekend actually used west cliff one to travel to town rather than just for the sightseeing experience. Brilliant clean tidy efficient service. Well worth the couple of quid.

If you are in Hastings you have to do this. Two funicular railways, two fantastic views. Quite windy when we visited but well worth it. The staff were friendly too.

Lovely experience great for kids. Two different cliff sides value for money.can be quite windy so worth taking a jacket. Opening times are seasonal so check.

Definitely dogs allowed, as long as they are on a lead and behave well. Also up in the country park they are allowed but obviously you have to pick up poo if they do doo doo.

I have visited Hastings a few times, previously by car and more recently by rail on a day out from London. There appeared to be plenty of parking even on the August bank holiday so you could bring your car but I wonder why... More

Hello, Once you leave the West Hill Upper Station there is about 400 yards walk on wide, well-maintained paths. I am 72 years old with walking difficulties and I found it to be quite a relaxed walk. Drehort
