South Devon Railway
The South Devon Railway is a fantastic, steamy day out! It’s one of the West Country’s top tourist attractions and will appeal to everyone in the family!
The railway is an outstanding seven-mile train ride behind a magnificent GWR steam engine between Buckfastleigh and Totnes, along one of England’s most beautiful stretches of river.
There is loads to see and do. We have a play area, beautiful gardens, a riverside picnic area, a museum, workshop and refreshment rooms and a great gift shop. Buckfastleigh station, which is just off the A38, midway between Exeter and Plymouth, has plenty of free car parking. The SDR station at Totnes is a short walk from Totnes town and the main line station.
And with joint tickets available for Dartmoor Otters & Buckfast Butterflies and the Totnes Rare Breeds Farm, you have the pulling power of a whole day filled with fun and interest!
