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!
  • Amazing - Best day out of our holiday. I would recommend this trip to anyone. It’s such great value for money and honestly such a special day out for all. We will definitely be back!
  • Scenic excursion - The journey from Paignton to Kingswear was a beautiful mixture of country and coast. The trains are vintage carriages and passengers are spaced out for safety. Lovely.
