If your legs aren't up to the climb of Constitution Hill (130m), you can catch a lift on the trundling little Cliff Railway, the UK's longest electric funicular and possibly its slowest too, at a breakneck 4mph. It must have been glacial when first built, in 1896, when it was powered by a water-balance system.
