Press & Film
The Dartmouth Steam Railway & River Boat Company welcome press and filming enquiries.
We have featured on various films and TV programmes from The One Show and the popular children's TV programme Milkshake Monkey, to the BBC2 series Great British Railway Journeys with Michael Portillo, to appearing on the BBC programme 'A Very British Murder' and numerous Agatha Christie films and photo shoots. We also play host to photo charters on the steam railway. The paddle steamer "Kingswear Castle" has also played host to the Miss England finals!
Greenway Halt, the steam train stop for Greenway House & Garden, is used regularly for filming as is the charming period station of Churston. Both Greenway and Churston have close connexions with Dame Agatha Christie and her novels.
Our vessels have also been used in TV programmes and even for filming Hollywood blockbusters (including 'World War Z' with Brad Pitt where the Cardiff Castle was employed whilst filming took place at Falmouth).
Our fleet includes the last remaining coal-fired paddle steamer in the UK, the Kingswear Castle. This wonderful vintage vessel is a member of Britain's historic fleet and is officially listed as being of pre-eminent national importance. The 'KC' has created a lot if interest since her return to home waters at the end of 2012 and even hosted the photo shoot for the 2013 Miss England competition.
We also take requests from overseas filming companies. We work very closely with the local tourist boards to ensure your film crew gets the best filming available.
Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for all press and filming enquiries.
