Dartmouth Steam Railway steam trains travel 7 miles along the most spectacular South Devon coast down into the Dart Valley, a designated area of outstanding beauty; with stations at Goodrington Sands, Churston and the beautiful village of Kingswear which sits proudly opposite the pretty Port of Dartmouth.

Dartmouth River Boats operates on the stunning River Dart offering daily scheduled services to the historic town of Totnes plus sea trips from Torquay and Brixham and coastal sea trips from Dartmouth. Harbour Cruises operate daily from Dartmouth.

We are unique in offering combined steam railway, river and sea adventures for days out in Devon. The Round Robin is an award-winning full day out – a steam train journey, ferry crossing, river cruise and bus ride, it is easy to see why it’s got the title it deserves.

Other trips include:

Cruises on the historic paddle steamer Kingswear Castle, the last remaining coal-fired paddle steamer in the UK.

The Sea Train Adventure. Departs from Torquay, Haldon Pier. Sail to Dartmouth and return by steam train and bus.

Dartmouth Coastal Cruise.  A cruise with a difference from Dartmouth which takes you outside the estuary and along the coast towards Start Point. Possibility to see some fantastic wildlife which inhabits the seas of the English Channel – for example dolphins & gannets!

Steam Train & Cruise. Paignton to Kingswear by steam train followed by a circular harbour cruise.
