We enjoyed travelling from Seaton to Colyford on the tram, walking round the mediaeval centre of the town, visiting the very interesting church, and then a very good cream tea at Colyford Station before returning. It was well worthwhile.More

The short journey takes you through the local area to the lovely seaside town of Seaton. During the trip the driver usually goes the extra mile with facts and fun. Much better nowadays as Seaton terminus has been seriously upgraded.

At present, it is not possible to directly stop at Seaton Wetlands. You can however access Seaton Wetlands from both Seaton and Colyford, both of which have stops.
