Scarborough‘s iconic Victorian cliff railway has been given an amazing award by Tripadvisor. The prestigious accolade commemorates enterprises that have consistently garnered excellent reviews from travelers on TripAdvisor throughout the past year.
This achievement positions these victors among the top 10% of all listings on Tripadvisor globally. Established in 1881, the Central Tramway Company Scarborough Limited stands as a Victorian cliff railway situated along the Yorkshire coast.
Remaining one of the UK’s oldest operational cliff railways, the Central Tramway boasts the distinction of being the country’s most ancient cliff tramway company, as the original corporation continues to manage the operations to this day.
Nestled in the heart of the charming South Bay in Scarborough, the Central Tramway Company cliff railway enjoys a convenient location between the St Nicholas Gardens and the Grand Hotel.
This service shuttles between Foreshore Road and St Nicholas Street, offering an ideal means of accessing the various attractions and amenities of the beachfront and the town centre. Situated a mere stone’s throw away are the Town Hall and the shops on Eastborough.
“To be in the top 10% of all attractions worldwide is an incredible achievement which fills me with pride and happiness for the whole organization who work tirelessly to maintain and improve our historic jewel in Scarborough’s crown.”We treat all feedback as a gift which we constantly monitor and react to as required, so we are thankful to Tripadvisor for providing this public service.”
John Boris, Chief Growth Officer at Tripadvisor, said: “Congratulations to the 2023 Tripadvisor Travelers’ Choice winners.
“The travel resurgence we’ve seen throughout the past year has even further heightened the competition. Earning a Travelers’ Choice Award demonstrates that you have provided great experiences to those who matter most: your guests.
“With changing expectations, continued labour shortages and rising costs, this is no easy feat, and I am continually impressed with the hospitality industry’s resilience and ability to adapt. Cheers to another successful year!”Central Tramway is proud to be part of Heritage Open Days again this year, and will be offering free guided tours to the public on Friday, September 8 and Monday, September 11.
