Lovely rides through out to and From Colyton, if on the top deck recommend remove hats and if have long hair tie it up. The Seaton entrance has been modernised, very kind friendly staff which made such a positive difference to our additional needs kids.


Visited Seaton Tramway last Saturday 2 days after it had opened the new Station. Our 5 year old loved it and was the highlight of our visit to the area. Everyone is very friendly. We spent a couple of hours riding the trams and enjoyed a lovely cream tea at Colyton station.


Just beautiful! Tram passes from the marshes, beautiful scenery and you might be lucky to spot some interesting birds along the way. Staff are really nice and helpful. If traveling with children I am sure they will love it! Will visit again, as I haven’t seen the NEW Seaton station yet but it looks beautiful from outside.

My first visit to the Tramway, and was a pleasurable experience all round. Excellent facilities, very friendly staff and a great trip there and back. I suggest starting from Colyton as parking is free next to the station. The Antique shop by the station is well worth a visit – on returning to Colyton as you are sure to buy something there!
The ride to Seaton is best from the top deck of an open-top tram – bring a camera with a long lens for close-ups of the birds on the river.
One big surprise is the brand new station at Seaton, having departed from an ex-Southern Railway station at Colyton.
The “Recommended length of visit” below is entirely dependant on how long you spend at Seaton – and that could be a long time as it’s a great seaside town.
Thank you Seaton Tramway and Seaton, for an excellent day out.


Service with a smile
Nothing was a problem for any of the staff, most of the trams were able to accommodate my husbands mobility scooter enabling us to explore the village of Colyton at leisure. Genuine customer care from Paul, 106. Highly recommend the experience.
