Top Devon Railways & Boats trips | Things To Do In Devon 2024

Enjoy a day out on one of the beautiful railways in Devon. As someone very wise once said … “It’s not about the destination, but the journey.” There’s a lot to be said for travelling by train or pleasure boat. Just imagine … sitting back, relaxing and watching rolling hills, river banks and coastal views that most people never get to see.

By railway and tram, that means wide horizons of rolling hills, river banks that are home to otters and kingfishers, awesome viaducts, and blue sea edged with colourful beach huts.

By boat, you see even more of hidden Devon: rarely-seen seabirds nesting on cliff edges, protected flora flourishing in hidden crevices, and even the occasional leaping dolphin or basking seal.
