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

  • 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.
  • Superb - Just loved the steam train from Paignton and boat trip in Dartmouth. A real old fashioned journey, social distancing in place. Great scenery and v.friendly helpful crew.
  • Trip back in time - What a fantastic experience. The train ride from Paignton is a gentle trip with stunning views. Arriving in Kingswear you can almost imagine how people in days gone by must have felt. A short ferry ride takes you into Dartmouth which is a stunning little town.
