The Round Robin is an award-winning full day out - a steam train journey, ferry crossing, river cruise and bus ride - a great full day out!In addition, we operate the last remaining coal fired paddle steamer in the UK - the beautiful 'Kingswear Castle'.Plus lots of other fantastic excursions and combinations!

If you want to visit Kingswear/Dartmouth, then go by the steam train from Paignton. A visit to the past when trains were trains....and I'm not a steam enthusiast. Spend the extra quid or two in the observation carriage. Worth every penny to see the countryside in old fashioned style

A great journey along the Riviera coast and the river Dart with fantastic views. comfortable carriages and the chance to travel in an opulent observation car. Surprise is the ferry crossing added into the price.

We did this trip in reverse, Bus, Boat then steam train. The weather was lovely so it made the trip all the better. The skipper on the boat gave an excellent commentary as we moved down the River Dart.
