Torbay Steam Fair

On 5th August 2022 to 7th August 2022 Brixham

The Torbay Steam Rally Group was formed during the 1980's. Following the deletion of the Torbay Rally from the Devon Traction Engine Club´s Calendar, a number of local enthusiasts from Brixham who were not prepared to allow the English Riviera to be deprived of it's Annual Steam Rally formed the Group, and through sheer hard work, one members expert knowledge of the Rally scene and sponsorship, held their first Rally on the traditional dates of the 1st weekend in August, in 1987.

The Fair now usually attracts 30+ full size and 20+ miniature Steam Engines, with a number of the Full size engines being Showmans.

Although it is predominantly a Steam Event all the various sections have increased and the show area has more than doubled in size over the years.

Back to What's on


  • Sights and smells - Cannot beat the smell and sound of a steam locomotive, a very scenic ride firstly along the beach, then along the river Dart. A couple of hours in Dartmouth then all aboard for trip back.
  • Great family fun - It was brilliant with our 2yo - she was so excited to see the trains and the view along the journey was beautiful. The commentary on the boat was well delivered. Would highly recommend!
  • What a splendid day! - Was a lovely trip on the railway, ferry and riverboat cruise. Very good prices and very friendly and good staff - and the adherence to covid rules too!
