We travelled on the steam train from Paigton to Kingswear then took the ferry across the river to Dartmouth where we had the hour long river cruise. The whole experience was excellent and well organised with one ticket for all travel. Good value for money for a full day out.

As we had a free day, my wife and I decided to take this Wonderful and Exciting trip from Paignton to Dartmouth in this lovely Steam Railway. Its only half an hour trip, but its worth evrybit as the train goes through wonderful scenery and its very exciting trip. From Kingswear, we took a foot passenger ferry to Dartmouth which was quite good.We enjoyed the trip.
