Torbay Steam Fair

On 2nd August 2024 to 4th August 2024 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


  • Harry Potteresque - Once on the platform we boarded the train (covid restrictions applied) and stepped back in time and themes of Harry Potters Hogwarts express sprang to mind! Brilliant!
  • Excellent. Recommended. - Numbers on board restricted due to Covid, but it didn't spoil our enjoyment. The Round Robin three-in-one ticket is a must do if you are in the area.
  • Lovely day out - We decided on a steam train and boat ride day. The train was lovely, and the boat ride was a lot of fun with an entertaining guide, which one of my teenage daughters found hilarious!
