Steep climbs, creaky trestles, and cliff-hugging curves are part of the ride on these rail routes.

Lynton & Lynmouth Cliff Railway, England

6 of 11

The Ride: The epitome of short and sweet, the Lynton & Lynmouth Cliff Railway delivers on its name, pulling you roller-coaster style up the 500-foot cliff that spans these two southwesterly coastal towns. Eco-fueled by water since 1888, each car holds 40 people and weighs 10 tons when fully packed.

Insider Tip: Since the ride is short, round out your trip to North Devon with a visit to nearby Exmoor National Park. You’ll likely spot an Exmoor pony, native to the moors in this part of England.
