Reviews

  • 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!
  • 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.
  • Absolutely amazing day out - Easy booking online and due to social distancing you have a set seat. Fabulous weather made the views even better and you can smell the fumes of the engine. Ticket includes return ferry to Dartmouth. Friendly helpful staff.
