I love this station it is kind of sleepy and old fashioned with its painted gables of red and green. There are always flowers on display and it is just a non hassle railway station.

You can often get a steam train from this old station or one of the main rail services which can connect you to the rest of the country. In days of old I'm sure this was heaving with families arriving for their summer holidays.

Torquay Railway Station is an old fashioned Station and we took the Steam train from Torquay to Dartmouth which gave us the experience of steam rushing past the windows. The seating is old fashioned however very comfortable and we enjoyed the experience again when we travelled back to Torquay

well, it has Class 43 Diesel HST's - and they're great machines! Typical seaside town railway station - stays in your affections.

Being disabled you have to report to the station 20mins prior to departure then have to get a taxi all the way round to the opposite side of the track! However on a lighter note the staff are very helpful in the booking office in there.

Refurbishment was ongoing but the style and colours of the station were being kept, a real old fashioned welcoming station. we caught the train to Dawlish and went along the railway that runs along the coast, great experience
