SOUTH DEVON RAILWAY
The South Devon Railway is a glorious branch line of the former Great Western Railway. Gleaming, historic steam engines haul trains full of enthralled passengers of all ages on a relaxing round trip between Buckfastleigh and Totnes Riverside. The line passes through some of Devon's most beautiful countryside, hugging the river Dart for almost all of your journey - and through hidden countryside rich in wildlife.
At Buckfastleigh, there is a riverside walk, play area, gardens, a fascinating museum, workshops and historic locomotives as well as our well stocked shop and refreshment rooms. On selected days, a miniature railway and a garden railway are in operation too.
Dartmoor Otters & Buckfast Butterflies is adjacent to Buckfastleigh station and you can buy joint tickets for both attractions. Down the line you'll discover sleepy Staverton, where time really has stood still, and on to historic Totnes. The station there has been rebuilt from buildings and artefacts rescued from all over the west country and is well worth a visit. While you are there, visit the award winning Totnes Rare Breeds Farm, right next door to the station. Joint tickets can be bought. We're also a short walk from the town and main line station.
The best way to buy your tickets is online, which you can do here.
There is plenty of free parking at Buckfastleigh station.
