Dartmouth Steam Railway Paignton to Kingswear

then take the ferry Dartmouth-Kingswear passenger ferry - free of charge on presentation of a valid steam train ticket!

 

Travel on the steam railway from Paignton to Kingswear, then cross on the passenger ferry to explore Dartmouth. Sit back and enjoy the trip as you pass the historic places and unsurpassed scenery, then catch the passenger ferry back to Kingswear for your return train ride to Paignton.

 

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 (optinal and free with your train ticket) 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).

 

IMPORTANT NOTE as of 27/7/21: Train and ferry/cruise passengers must wear a face covering on their journey to help reduce the risk of transmission when social distancing is not always possible. Face coverings include but are not restricted to, surgical face masks. These face coverings should cover the mouth and nose while allowing the wearer to breathe comfortably and can be as simple as a scarf or bandana that ties behind the head to give a snug fit.
