A homely feel to this 19th century station, with most of its original architecture in tact. Stunning view as you walk out the front towards the promenade with he expanse of Torbay in view between the trees. Helpful friendly staff - tho not usually manned outside 7am - 6pm, when the newly refurbished toilets are also closed. I understand major... More

Not very close to the town. But nice walk to it in good weather. If its bad weather you may need a taxi outside of the station. Toilets are never open and never any staff around 6. Needs a bit of make over looking a bit old. At the end of the day its a train station. There are benches,... More

Best bet if going to Newton Abbot or Exeter, about £7 single and is very much faster than the bus. Frequent trains, so not long to wait. Not too handy for centre of town, especially if you have luggage, so a taxi may be needed, or get a bus outside the station on the main road. Do not know what... More

Used Paignton to travel to Dawlish. Nice old station, which appears to be having done refurb done. Didn't realise it was the end of the line for the majority of services that use it. Staff helpful when purchasing tickets. Lovely stretch of line to Dawlish, particularly the coast parts. Station well situated, within easy walking distances of town, shops and... More

The station buildings have changed very little on the outside since it opened in the 19th century and has a old-fashioned feel about the place. There is an excellent café on the arrivals platform where the booking office can also be found. The taxi rank is also located via the booking hall to the right as you leave the station... More

A large airy and clean station with good facilities. Staff are on duty most of the day and are helpful in assisting with travel arrangements and any queries. The toilets have been modernised. A cafe is available for refreshments. Plenty of taxi's if you need one.
