Lynton and its neighbour Lynmouth are in the Exmoor National Park and nestle amongst some of the finest scenery that Britain has to offer. This is a popular route along the coast and both villages are well visited and established tourist attractions. The Victorians used to call this area "Little Switzerland".
Lynton compliments its neighbour and has a variety of shops and windy little streets that give it a unique character. The Tourist Information office in its imposing building is also based in Lynton. Of notable interest is the Lynton and Lynmouth Cliff Railway which joins Lynton and Lynmouth and the trains can regularly be seen travelling up and down the steep cliff. It is water powered.
