Primary School Visits

The Dartmouth Steam Railway and River Boat Company are offering primary schools discounted rates on group travel this year. We offer a wide range of facilities, activities and special rates for primary school aged children (including return journeys starting from any of our stations; Paignton, Goodrington, Churston or Kingswear). We offer:

  • Our Visitor Centre based at Kingswear Station for pupils to learn about the history of steam travel and the local area.

Substantial discounts are available:-

  • The opportunity for our staff to visit your classroom for a preparation day or a follow up visit for children to have a question and answer session with one of our staff. 2017 prices are as follows: The trip is offered at a discount rate for schools of £5.00 per child return, (normal price is £10.00 return), and £5.00 per adult, (normal price is £16.75 return).

  • In addition, train travel can be linked to a Dartmouth River Cruise where children can discover more about local wildlife on the river Dart with detailed commentary. This is at an additional price of £4 per child/adult making the total including the cruise £8.50 per child (normal price £13) and £8.50 per adult (normal price £24.50).

We hope this opportunity can provide the perfect educational outing for your primary school.
