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.

  • Delightful - The staff were all very friendly and the captain kept us entertained with his 'dad jokes' throughout. Recommend 100% for all ages. Great trip. Thank you.
  • Steam train - Great little day out - highly recommended. The boat trip up the dart was very good with the captain guiding us and the steam train was great for kids too.
  • Absolutely fabulous experience - The whole day was fabulous with great weather and steam trains. The line is one of the most scenic you will ever experience and is a must visit if in the area. I will definitely be back again :-)
