Saltburn Cliff Tramway retains Visit England seal of approval

CHEERFUL, smartly dressed staff, excellently maintained carriages and high standards of cleanliness were just some of the reasons why Saltburn’s Cliff Tramway has retained its Visit England “Quality Assured Visitor Attraction” status.

The national tourism agency recently visited the popular attraction, which has this year alone been used by more than 60,000 people, and delivered a glowing report.

Councillor Dale Quigley, cabinet member for culture, tourism and communications, said: “This is great news for Saltburn. We know how much people love the tramway so it’s brilliant to see that reflected by such an important national organisation.

“I’d like to congratulate the committed staff and say a big ‘thank you’ to the thousands of visitors who use the lift every year. We couldn’t have achieved this wonderful accolade without you.”

The Saltburn Cliff Tramway is open daily from 10.30am – 8pm (until Thursday 31 August). From Friday 1 September the tramway closes earlier at 6.30pm before closing for the winter shutdown on Sunday 29 October.

A single one-way fare is just £1 for adults, free for under-four year olds, and 50p for four – 16 year olds. A family ticket (two adults/three children or one adult/four children) is just £2.50.
