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.
Come and enjoy 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, gardens, riverside picnic area, museum, workshop, refreshment rooms and a great gift shop. Buckfastleigh station, 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.
