Hop aboard the South Devon Railway


The South Devon Railway is the West Country's oldest heritage steam railway, transporting you back in time to the golden age of steam.

Journey along a scenic line that hugs the beautiful River Dart almost all the way from Buckfastleigh to Totnes. Enjoy fantastic views all along the valley and take in the unmistakeable sights, sounds and smells aboard a traditional steam train.

The railway runs heritage steam trains and makes a wonderful, all-weather attraction for families and people of all ages. Whilst you are there, you can also visit the Totnes Rare Breeds Farm and Dartmoor Otters & Buckfast Butterflies -  three great animal attractions both children and adults will love.

The attractions can be found just off the A38 at Buckfastleigh, very close to the famous Buckfast Abbey, or by train to Totnes on the Great Western main line.
