Steam and sail with joint group ticket

Date Posted: 09/01/2015

Two Devonshire attractions have joined forces and are steaming ahead with a new Boat Train ticket option for groups.

The ticket, from Buckfastleigh-based South Devon Railway and Stuart Line Cruises of Exmouth in Devon, offers a 14-mile round trip aboard a heritage steam train on the scenic South Devon Railway down the beautiful valley of the River Dart, plus a cruise along the river Exe with Stuart Line Cruises from Exmouth.

The ticket has been designed to provide visitors with a different morning and afternoon itinerary.

Groups can either board at Exmouth first for the Stuart Line cruise -- which can be for an hour or up to two hours by request -- and then travel by their own coach afterwards to the South Devon Railway at Buckfastleigh for the hour and a quarter round trip steam train ride, or vice versa starting at the railway first.
