Owner description: The award winning Dartmouth Steam Railway & River Boat Company!...Dartmouth Steam Railway steam trains travel seven miles along the most spectacular South Devon coast down into the Dart Valley and to the village of Kingswear which sits proudly opposite the Port of Dartmouth. Dartmouth River Boats operate on the stunning river Dart offering daily services to the historic town of Totnes and to the picturesque village of Dittisham. Harbour Cruises operate daily from Dartmouth. There are also wonderful adventures by sea from Torquay, Brixham & Salcombe to enjoy. We are unique in offering combined steam railway, bus and boat excursions for days out in Devon. The Round Robin is an award-winning full day out - a steam train journey, ferry crossing, river cruise and bus ride - a great full day out!In addition, we operate the last remaining coal fired paddle steamer in the UK - the beautiful 'Kingswear Castle'.Plus lots of other fantastic excursions and combinations!

Really enjoyed this trip especially as it was the anniversary! Lego gift was given to my little boy to celebrate their 150th! We also got to travel on the paddle steamer! Would definitely go on here again!

Just got back from a day watching the Dawlish Air Show from aboard "Dart Venturer"
Two Lancasters and the Red Arrows were the standout displays but actually we got a full 4 hours of spectacle and all for £17.90 each.tremendous value and quite frankly no hassle and the best view by far. Not too sure why only 50 odd people on board but hey, it was great for us!
Skipper told me that Red Arrows on Wed is only £3.50 . Amaze balls! Booked already

Would highly recommend anyone visiting to travel via steam train to Paignton. Lovely seaside resort with plenty to entertain young and old. The train was reasonably priced with friendly staff working.
