Sparkling Seaside Fun

Sunday 8 December was a busy day at Babbacombe Cliff Railway, with hoards of families visiting the Cliff Railway Christmas Den on Oddicombe Beach for crafts, pressies, story-telling, and lots of festive spirit (plus mulled wine and mince pies for the grown ups), all part of their special Christmas Sparkle event.

Marketing Manager Nicky Allen said “It was a lovely day.  The children really enjoyed themselves and we have had so many fantastic comments.” The event has been organised and run by Cliff Railway Administrator Sarah Foley and Nicky said “Sarah has done a wonderful job creating a really cosy Christmas den and filling it with activities.  There’s a fabulous festive feel to the place and there’s even music playing in the carriages as you travel down the cliff to the beach.  Sarah seems to have thought of everything and we’re delighted with how well it’s gone.”  The event is on for the next two Sundays, 15 and 22 December from 10.30am to 2.30pm and costs just £5.95 per child.  The price includes return travel for a child and an adult and all the activities in the Visitor Centre as well.  For more information and some pictures of what’s been going on visit
