Dartmouth - Ferry from Dartmouth to Kingswear & Return train on Dartmouth Steam Railway Paignton to Kingswear Return

A short foot passenger ferry (takes you across the river Dart to the historic town of Dartmouth; home to the Britannia Royal Naval College, Bayards Cove, Butterwalk and Dartmouth Castle (England's first Castle to have guns as its main armament).

Travel on the steam railway from Paignton to Kingswear, then cross on the passenger ferry to explore Dartmouth. Sit back and enjoy the trip as you pass the historic places and unsurpassed scenery, then catch the passenger ferry back to Kingswear for your return train ride to Paignton.

The scenery on this picturesque line is breathtaking - from Paignton along the spectacular English Riviera Geopark coast line, to the picturesque stations at Goodrington and Churston, then on through the wooded slopes of Long Wood bordering the Dart Estuary to Greenway Halt (for the estate of the late Dame Agatha Christie) and on to Kingswear. From spotting dolphins to seals, kingfishers to buzzards, pheasants, herons and egrets, the wildlife is superb. With such a varied range of scenery and wildlife, this is one of the finest heritage steam railway journeys anywhere in Europe.
