As we were holidaying locally, we took a trip on the tram. What fun! The route from Seaton to Colyton runs beside a tidal river, and we saw some very interesting wading birds and waterfowl.

Travelling from Colyton to the coastal resort of Seaton was a very pleasant family day out, especially the thirty-minute ride on the superb Seaton Tram. The Trams are in immaculate condition and the staff are very friendly, well worth a visit.

we spent a lovely few hours on the Trams next to the river Axe and wetlands. This Tramway is well worth a visit for a chance to ride on these restored Trams.

At present, it is not possible to directly stop at Seaton Wetlands. You can however access Seaton Wetlands from both Seaton and Colyford, both of which have stops.
