Attraction Information

Journey through a beautiful and unspoilt countryside overflowing with wildlife at the South Devon Railway.

The line runs for 7 miles from Buckfastleigh to Totnes, along the stunning valley of the river Dart, with a backdrop of beautiful Devonshire hills. There is plenty to see at both ends of the track, and trains also stop at Steverton, which has some stunning riverside walks to the nearby village.

At the stops you’ll find a play area, museum, gardens, a picnic area, and a model and gift shop with a model railway. Dartmoor Otters, Buckfast Butterflies and Totnes Rare Breeds Farm can be found at Buckfastleigh station. Why not combine your train journey with a visit to see the local wildlife and help support the local conservation efforts?
