Bucket List of things to do in South Devon

So you are in South Devon, here is a bucket list of things to do, some I have done, some I want to do…

  • Take the steam train from Paignton to Kingswear – this is a must for fans of steam trains or just trains in particular, price is reasonable starting at £19.95 for an adult with upgrades for the round robin, boat and open top bus, from Kingswear take the ferry across to Dartmouth and walk to Dartmouth Castle for great seaviews.
  •  A Visit to Brixham, Rockfish fish and chip shops are just the best and have fresh fish off the trawlers.
  • Take in a glorious sunrise or sunset (or both) on Paignton seafront.
  • Visit the quirky town of Totnes and the North Devon steam train
  • Discover the lighthouse, fort and nature reserve at Berry Head
  • Take the coastal path from Brixham to Kingswear for an exhilarating walk!
  • Take a trip on the historic paddle steamer “Kingswear Castle”
  • Dolphin spotting on a Western Lady ferry between Torquay and Brixham
  • Visit the English Heritage Dartmouth Castle, just a short beautiful uphill walk from Dartmouth town.
  • Take a ride on the Devon Belle observation carriage, one of only two in the world, on the Dartmouth Steam Railway.
