Angels Flight Railway Tours and Activities

star-4.5
95 Reviews
Angels Flight Railway
Set in the heart of downtown Los Angeles and billed as the ‘world’s shortest railway,’ Angel’s Flight has vintage California style. If you recognize the smartly painted orange-and-black cars, it’s likely because the railway boasts dozens of onscreen appearances, including Perry Mason and La La Land.  
 
The Basics
Technically a funicular, the Angel’s Flight Railway links Grand Central Market with California Plaza, saving pedestrians a walk up a steep flight of stairs. Since the stairs parallel the tracks, it’s possible to walk one way and ride the other. Some history tours and film-location tours of Los Angeles visit Angel’s Flight, and the railway is also a favorite stop on downtown walking tours.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • This is a great destination for photographers. Take the stairs to snap rail cars and track in profile.
  • Wheelchair users can board Angel’s Flight Railway at the Upper Station for a round-trip ride.
  • Bring a Los Angeles Transit Access Pass (TAP Card) if you have one, since the passes can be used for a 50% discount.
 
How to Get There
The Upper Station is located at 350 South Grand Avenue on California Plaza, while the lower station can be found at 351 South Hill Street. The closest metro station is Pershing Square, with service from the Metro Purple Line and Metro Red Line.
 
When to Get There
Angel’s Flight Railway is open daily, and long lines are uncommon no matter when you decide to visit. If you’re planning to check out nearby Grand Central Market at the same time, keep in mind that the market’s hours vary by day.
 
Where to Eat at Grand Central Market
A short distance from the Lower Station of Angel’s Flight Railway, Grand Central Market is home to some of Los Angeles’ most beloved food vendors. There’s a lot to choose from, but favorites include Thai food at Sticky Rice, Mexican cuisine at Tacos Tumbras a Tomas, baked goods from Clark Street Bread, and breakfast sandwiches from Eggslut.
