This is definitely a quintessential English railway station at its best. From the bridge over the platform to the building itself. Worth seeing.

Have used the ticket office several times over the past few months and have been impressed by the service. Staff are polite and helpful and always willing to find the best deal. Have also been surprised that usually the price of tickets is as good or better than online agencies.

The steam trains... More

It was pleasant enough waiting for our train to Exeter in the autumnal sunshine but, be warned, there are no lifts so luggage has to be manhandled across a bridge. But wheeled luggage can be taken across by exiting the station, going round to the road bridge to the south of the station and re-entering the station onto the other... More

Walked over to see Torquay Railway Station to see the refurbishment, what a difference. However after spending £Ks on the work the weeds are still plentiful in the between the tracks. The pampas grass also makes the placed untidy, so I can only rate it as 'average'. The toilets on Platform 1 are a great improvement and very clean. If... More
