Feel like a real Victorian and take a leisurely ride on the famous Cliff Railway

Connecting the two towns of Lynton & Lynmouth, it’s the longest and steepest, water-powered funicular railway in the world and it’s great fun.

Take the whole family for a ride on a local steam railway. The Lynton & Barnstaple Railway is the last heritage narrow-gauge railway and is a truly magical experience.

Wonder at the Wildlife

Love wildlife? The Exmoor Zoo is a really special place to spend a day with the family. See the most unusual wild animals; creepy crawlies and snakes, wallabies, monkeys, inquisitive meerkats, and not forgetting the terrifying Exmoor Beast!

Nearby Heddon Valley offers the chance to see the UK’s most endangered butterfly, the High Brown Fritillary where regular Family Butterfly trails are organised by the National Trust throughout the summer.
