STEAM TRAIN & BOAT TRIPS


No visit to Dartmouth is complete without a trip on a steam train, a paddle steamer or river boat – all run by the Dartmouth Steam Railway and River boat Company. It’s the only attraction in Devon that lets you enjoy the delights of Torquay, Paignton, Brixham, Dartmouth and the River Dart, Kingswear and Totnes on your day out!


Our steam trains travel seven miles along the South Devon coast back and forth from Paignton and Kingswear through the Dart Valley with an intermediate station at Goodrington Sands, Churston. The original railway line to Kingswear was completed in 1864. The Platform One Champagne Bar & Restaurant on Dartmouth’s embankment was the original station for passengers in Dartmouth who then travelled across the river by ferry to Kingswear to join the train. British Railways closed the line in the early 1970s before the line was reopened by the Dart Valley Railway in 1973 to run rail services mostly for the expanding tourist market.


Dartmouth River Boats operate along the River Dart offering daily scheduled services to the historic town of Totnes (nine miles upriver) as well as circular river cruises daily from Dartmouth plus regular services to the


village of Dittisham. The river cruise to Totnes travels along nearly all of the navigable part of the beautiful River Dart. Apart from viewing the magnificent buildings of the Britannia Royal Naval College and Agatha Christie’s Greenway Estate, you will enjoy the riverside villages of Stoke Gabriel and Dittisham, the Sharpham Estate with its vineyards, and the steeply wooded hillsides plunging down to the water’s edge - providing unparalleled scenic views.
