Seaton tramway was very enjoyable and relaxing as a family with 4 children. We had lovely weather where we were able to sit up on the upper deck and enjoy the fantastic views. Would definitely do this again and recommend to other families to enjoy.

I loved it when I was younger and I made sure dragged my girlfriend to it. It was not a disappointment. The drivers were friendly and funny. They made the picturesque ride even more enjoyable.

No better way to relive ones childhood memories of holidays by the sea. A must for anyone young or old. On our trip we were joined by the Fairies (Children’s Dressing Up) A nice way to spend time away from the seafront crowds.

Dogs are £1 for one way. You can stop at certain points but check on the day. The journey takes around 25 minutes one way. Enjoy!
