Fishermans Walk Cliff Lift

From Fisherman's Walk to the beach

Opened in 1935, the Fishermans Walk Lift serves the Southbourne and Boscombe promenades. It links the beach with Fisherman's Walk - a delightful public gardens.

Opened in 1935 by the borough engineer, Mr F P Delamore, Fisherman's Walk Cliff Railway is by far the youngest of the town's three lines. Fisherman's Walk Cliff Railway is very similar to its earlier counterparts. The line carried two 12-seater passenger cars and was originally wound by a 21 h.p. 500V DC motor.

The cliff railway at Fisherman's Walk has entrance buildings at both ends of the line.

Open between April and October.
