Cliff lifts

Bournemouth’s cliff lifts run between Easter and the end of October, subject to weather conditions. They get you to the beach from the clifftops and give you a great view of the coast.

West Cliff Lift

Built in 1908, the West Cliff Lift links the seafront to the Bournemouth International Centre.

East Cliff Lift  

The East Cliff Lift was also built in 1908 and links the beach to the Russell Cotes Art Gallery & Museum.

Unfortunately, due to a significant cliff slide, the East Cliff Lift is currently out of action. Work to monitor the site is ongoing.

Fisherman's Walk Cliff Lift

Since 1935 the Fisherman’s Walk Cliff Lift has been linking the beach to a clifftop café and children’s play area.  

All prices are for one-way journeys, except passes.
