Greenway Halt

Greenway Halt (by steam train and shuttle bus)

Step back in time to the 1950’s when steam trains were the way to travel…..

If you are interested in visiting Greenway House and Garden, you can now arrive by steam train (and shuttle bus should you prefer not to walk)! Just board our steam train at Paignton or Kingswear and catch the bus connection at Churston or at the Halt. (Click to download leaflet).

Sitting on the banks of the beautiful River Dart with simply stunning views, Greenway House and Garden is run by The National Trust. Formerly the holiday home of Agatha Christie and her family, it holds the family collection of the famous author. The gardens are home to over 2,700 species of trees and woody plants which are just waiting to be discovered.

Things you need to know before your visit
