The railways in Devon allow visitors to explore the historic, the beautiful and the fascinating – as do the steam trains, trams and pleasure boats.
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 Devon railway, steam train or pleasure boat. Just imagine … sitting back, relaxing and watching parts of Devon roll by 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.
It doesn’t even matter what the weather’s doing. Come rain or shine, a railway journey or boat ride is just wonderful – and you’re undercover if things do get a little wet.
This is an adventure that all ages enjoy too. Little ones and big ones love the thrill of setting off on a journey, and anticipating all that there is to be spotted en-route.
And it’s not just about journeys, either. Children, parents and adult enthusiasts alike will enjoy a visit to one of Devon’s train attractions, where train-themed rides, play areas, exhibits and displays provide a whole day of family entertainment.
