Paignton to Dartmouth Steam Train

The scenery on this picturesque line is breathtaking - from Paignton along the spectacular English Riviera Geopark coast line, to the picturesque stations at Goodrington and Churston, then on through the wooded slopes of Long Wood bordering the Dart Estuary to Greenway Halt (for the estate of the late Dame Agatha Christie) and on to Kingswear. From spotting dolphins to seals, kingfishers to buzzards, pheasants, herons and egrets, the wildlife is superb. With such a varied range of scenery and wildlife, this is one of the finest heritage steam railway journeys anywhere in Europe. A short foot passenger ferry takes you across the river Dart to the historic town of Dartmouth; home to the Britannia Royal Naval College, Bayards Cove, Butterwalk and Dartmouth Castle (England’s first Castle to have guns as its main armament). We have teamed up with English Heritage to offer you 20% discount on the entry price at Dartmouth Castle! Please show your train ticket, (which must be dated for the same day), when you get to the castle. Call into the English Riviera Visitor Information Centre on Torquay harbour side to purchase tickets.
