What a delight!

There is something ever so lovely about travelling by steam train and the Dartmouth Steam Railway deliver.

I took both the rail and river trip, enjoying a steam train ride from Paignton to Kingswear, took the ferry over to Dartmouth, then the cruise along the River Dart - and back home again via steam train.

A fabulous day!

Went on steam train from Paignton to Kingswear, then straight over on the ferry to Dartmouth. It was fun to be on the steam train chugging its way along the coastline and then through beautiful countryside. The ferry was quick over to Dartmouth, such a picturesque town on the river Dart, with its majestic naval college high up on a hill and interesting selection of high quality shops. The return journey was equally smooth and enjoyable.

This attraction is great for both adults and children and takes us older guys back to the trains of our youth.The carriages are in great condition and being pulled by a steam engine named Braveheart was wonderful .The trip to catch the boat across to Dartmouth was approx 30mins long and the boat trip only about 5 mins
Dartmouth itself is a super town ,almost village like with quaint shops and good eating places A must visit attraction

Good trip for family with young children, the carriages have space at the end for push chairs and there is plenty of space in the seats. The scenery changes alot so lots to look at and the tunnel can be very exciting! The ferry ride across to Dartmouth adds another element and the staff are very family friendly.
