Fishermans Walk Cliff Lift

From Fisherman's Walk to the beach

Opened in 1935 the Fishermans Walk Lift is designed to serve the Southbourne and Boscombe promenades.

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.

Just as in the case of the East Cliff and West Cliff railways, the cliff railway at Fisherman's Walk has entrance buildings at both ends of the line.

Open between April and October.
