We enjoyed travelling from Seaton to Colyford on the tram, walking round the mediaeval centre of the town, visiting the very interesting church, and then a very good cream tea at Colyford Station before returning. It was well worthwhile.More

The short journey takes you through the local area to the lovely seaside town of Seaton. During the trip the driver usually goes the extra mile with facts and fun. Much better nowadays as Seaton terminus has been seriously upgraded.

Great for the family and kids to enjoy, the staff and the story actors were really good and got people engaged and linked in with the story very well. Can not wait to book again for next year 🚂

Take the upstairs of the small trams to enjoy the views over the Axe estuary .Food and souvenirs are available at Colyton . Its worth a walk around this ancient rebel town and a peep inside the unique old church

Narrow gauge trams and day tickets so ride as often as you want. Cafe and toilets. Lots of background information. Staff friendly and welcoming and knowledgeable. We had a sunny day so it was a pleasure to be on a tram at Seaton.

At present, it is not possible to directly stop at Seaton Wetlands. You can however access Seaton Wetlands from both Seaton and Colyford, both of which have stops.
