HRA Award

6th August 2021

We were proud to be nominated (and win!) the Heritage Railway Association (HRA) award for outstanding tourist attraction of theyear 2021 for the pioneering and enterprising way in which we (as a major heritage line and tourism attraction) worked against the clock to break vast amounts of new ground in readiness for the resumption of summer services following the lifting of the first Covid-19 lockdown on 6th July 2020.

Full details can be found at the HRA website.

  • What a great day - Excellent trip on the steam train, very well covid organised and beautiful scenery on the way. The cruise trip was wonderful and very relaxing. The guys on the ship were very good and quite witty. Well worth the day out.
  • Great day!! - We travelled from Paignton to Dartmouth on train and a ferry. Beautiful coastal views. Well organised. My little boy loved it.
  • Great fun - Cost of ticket sooooo worth it! Very safe on the train. Not over crowded and screens between seats. Dartmouth is a hidden gem which we thoroughly enjoyed. We took a boat trip too! Great day.
