Short journey but it's a lovely one it gives you chance to take in many of the views, watching the cliff lifts, going past the light boat house and the back of the theme park it's fun and gives your legs a little rest

I love this little train! Take in the views of the sea front, beach, fishing boats and so much more as you travel a long on the cheapest miniature railway on the coast! Add it to your 'must-do' list when visiting Hastings. There's plenty of carriages, some open and some closed and there's also space to put folded down buggies,... More

This is near to East Hill funicular railway at the far end of Hastings seafront and amongst the shipwreck and fisherman's museums. Where all the black long thin smokehouses are that double up as little fish shops. More for the kids but adults can ride it. Short train journey along only part of the seafront. Steam driven and quite a... More

If you have grandchildren with you. Take this train journey everyone waves at you and you feel very special. The children will love it. But beware. Check the price , for a short journey it can be very expensive. It cost me £8 for 2 laps and 2 children under4 years old. And that was only one way!!!!!

I used this back in the summer,when i visited Hasings Old Town to buy some fish from our excellent fishmongers there. The line runs from by the Boating Lake, to the area known as Rock-a-Nore. There are no intermediate stops, and the other terminus is close to the East Hill Cliff Railway, the Blue Reef Aquarium, the Shipwreck Centre, the... More

Our kids enjoyed the experience on a sunny October afternoon, it is reasonably priced and well cared for. Arguably over a little too swiftly despite limited speed of trains.

£2 single or £3 return. A quaint trip hauled by a variety of small locos. not a long trip through the 'Stade' next to the beach but fun, for all train fans.

The engines themselves look fantastic, they are obviously well loved and looked after, but the line is very short and doesn't really go anywhere I guess it doesn't really matter to the kiddies who ride it though. The stations are very run down, and the line itself not well cared for, it just feels a bit unloved.

We visited the seafront 3 times during our week long holiday, the railway was only open one of these times. We sat by the booth (displaying train open signs) for 15 mins but there was no sign of the train, no one to ask and no information on the time of the next train. I had a very disappointed 3... More
