The Lynton to Barnstaple Steam Railway
The line was closed in 1935 - and is now being rebuilt. A one mile section has now been reopened allowing visitors to travel by train along the original ‘L&B Railway’ route above the Heddon Valley near Parracombe in South West England’s Exmoor National Park. As well as a regular train service throughout the summer, there are special events listed on the web site
Lynton cinema is charming, cosy and comfortable. Added to which it has all the latest films with a weekly changing programme. it is equiped with the latest sound and projection equipment, including a loop for those with hearing difficulties, but still somehow manages to preserve an old age charm. Well worth a visit.
Lynton and Lynmouth Cliff Railway
This has got to be the best and most exciting way to travel between the two villages. The Victorian water powered railway with its 862 feet of track connects the two communities and gives fantastic views from the carriage as you travel up and down the cliff. For more information see the website
