Dartmouth Steam Railway - One of the finest steam train trips in the country, it follows the glorious coastline of Torbay on the South Devon coast, through stunning Devon countryside and overlooking the River Dart. The railway line links the resort of Paignton with Dartmouth.

Torquay - Devon’s most popular resort, the beautiful seaside town is busy, thriving, and modern – and has gorgeous golden sandy beaches, bright blue bays, palm trees, warm (almost Mediterranean) breeze, and spectacular views.

Plymouth - A lively oceanside city on the South Coast home to the famous Hoe with its red and white striped former lighthouse Smeaton's Tower - and picturesque harbour.

The Riviera Hotel - Located right in the heart of Torquay, the hotel has a superb cabaret room with nightly entertainment, an American-style sports bar with many screens showing the latest sports – and even a pool!

Steam & Cruise Spectacular

Steam & Cruise Spectacular

Enjoy a spectacular journey along the coast by steam train from Paignton to Kingswear, with outstanding views of coast and country, crossing no less than three of Brunel’s great viaducts and passing through the famous tunnel en route. From Kingswear we cross by ferry to beautiful Dartmouth for a spectacular harbour cruise, with the sights of Dartmouth Castle, Ditchingham village, the Royal Naval College and Greenway House – home to the late Dame Agatha Christie.


Acclaimed as'The English Riviera'
Devon’s most popular coastal resort, and part of the UNESCO-accredited Global Geopark (meaning it provides unique cultural, geological, and historical importance to the world), Torquay is the ultimate traditional seaside town that’s still thriving to this day.

This is because its climate and beauty make you feel like you’re abroad – the reason why it is acclaimed as the ‘English Riviera’. No wonder Agatha Christie spent much of her life in her hometown!

Famous for its palm trees, harbour and beaches
The family-friendly holiday destination is famous for its iconic palm tree-lined promenade, busy harbour and marina, sandy beaches – and its horseshoe-shaped bay provides some of the best conditions for water sports.

Although the town is full of old-school seaside charm, it is a cosmopolitan place – full of continental-style cafés, restaurants, bars, and one of the top theatres in the country. There is no better place to enjoy some of the freshest seafood straight from England’s Seafood Coast.



With breathtaking views, plenty of attractions and incredible shops and restaurants to enjoy, Plymouth is a lively oceanside city on the South Coast. Nestled between Devon and Cornwall, Plymouth is home to many famous attractions, from The Box Museum, the Mayflower Steps and the famous Hoe with its red-and-white striped former lighthouse, Smeaton’s Tower.

The popular Barbican and Sutton Harbour offer quaint cobbled streets, along with a picturesque harbour and plenty of independent shops and restaurants to enjoy. Even simply exploring the waterfront will bring you stunning views out onto the ocean and you can explore the waterfront parks which can be found throughout the city.
