Funicular’s of Hasting

East Cliff top station

Our visit to the Funicular railway at Hasting came with a surprise yesterday over the years I have been up the East Cliff a number of times but we chose the wrong week it was closed for annual maintenance work. However the surprise on talking to the maintenance man was Hastings has second Funicular railway. The West Cliff railway that was running and situated only about ½ a mile along the seafront, tucked between the shops was the station. This ride up is through a tunnel. At the top was a café a close enough to walk to Hastings castle.
