We went on the steam train to Greenways, lovely, all the sounds and smells of my childhood. Children would love this, get on early fills up quick.

What a beautiful journey we had to Dartmouth and back. Well worth the money. Unfortunately we didn't take the ferry on the way back but very enjoyable all the same.

Great station in the heart of Torquay. Taking grandchildren various ages. So so glad everything central. Staff helped me with bags into taxi. Old fashion customer service which was appreciated by us. Other railway stations should follow this example.

Be aware there aren't lifts available (at least when we visited Torquay) and there are a huge stairs to cross over to the other side!! At least the station is closed to the city centre

I remember seeing a GWR tank engine coming into this station some 65 years ago and always enjoy paying a visit. Nice to see it's being looked after, looking clean and bright. Getting from one platform to the other will always be a problem without lift facilities.

Handy location at the edge of town and easy to reach from anywhere in the country. The decoration is to make it what it is quaint and Victorian and it works.

A beautiful station. Just recently painted in red,green and white. All the Victorian features look stunning. Had to pay to park but at £4 for the day it compares well with Derby where it is £13 for the day.
