Parking

Railway

Regrettably we do not have a customer car park at Paignton or Kingswear.

At Paignton there are a number of local car parks to choose from. Just click on the car parks links below for details.

All the above are operated by Torbay Council - weekly car park tickets can be obtained from local Tourist Information Centres.

The only car park at Kingswear is the Marina car park (postcode TQ6 0AA) and it is very limited. This car park is privately owned and charges apply.

River Boats & Buses

Dartmouth Embankment (postcode TQ6 9BH). Park and Ride available (postcode TQ6 9LW) - situated at the top of Dartmouth on the A3122 opposite Sainsbury's. There is a short-stay car park in the town centre (postcode TQ6 9NF), (maximum of 3 hours), opposite the Embankment.

Totnes Steamer Quay (postcode TQ9 5AL). There is plenty of all day parking here but the two car parks are owned by South Hams District Council, so charges apply. Check their website for current prices or you can telephone to make payment by card.  Please Note : unfortunately our kiosk staff are unable to supply coinage for car parking.

Reviews

  • Choo choo - What a lovely trip we had. Despite covid they had 2 steam services in operation and could safely carry lots of people. A 20 minute journey and free ferry to Dartmouth is included in the price. Go enjoy some nostalgia!
  • Enjoyable - The cruise was what took the cake for me. Breathtaking views, historical sites and a fantastic guide made it all the more entertaining to sit back and take in the lovely sights! Would highly recommend! :)
  • Nostalgic - We included a cruise on our trip and spent an hour on the paddlesteamer (the captain pointing out some interesting features and telling a few stories along the way). This was a very enjoyable day and worth every penny.
