Dogs welcome

A perfect holiday is one that all the family enjoy together - and we know your dog is considered part of the family. Besides, we believe dogs should have just as much fun as the rest of us! The Dartmouth Steam Railway & River Boat Company are very much dog friendly - we understand how important our four legged friends are and that they should come on holiday too.

Well behaved dogs are more than welcome on all of our trips* for a nominal fee of £2 per dog.

However, as a responsible dog owner, we know you'll understand when we ask you to adhere to the following;

  • Keep your dog on a lead at all times
  • Do not allow your dog to sit on our seats
  • Always 'pick up' after your dog

*Excluding our Christmas services

Reviews

  • Highly recommend. - From boarding in Paignton, to alighting the ferry in Dartmouth, this journey has to be the best you can take on the English Riviera. It all goes by too quick. Highly recommend.
  • Lovely trip - The steam railway train is brilliant, the iconic click-clacking of the train was enjoyable to listen to and and the train ride had stunning views. The short ferry was also lovely (only about a minute or two).
  • 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.
