Dartmouth through ticket

Your ticket to Dartmouth

We have once again teamed up with the Dartmouth Steam Railway and River Boat Company to bring you a through-ticket direct to and from Dartmouth.

Take three modes of transport in one very special and unique journey. Travel by GWR train to Paignton, where you can connect with the steam train to Kingswear, and then the ferry service to Dartmouth.

How to book

  • Bookings are available from Saturday 22 July to Sunday 29 October, Tuesday 31 October and Thursday 2 November 2023
  • Buy a ticket to Dartmouth direct with Great Western Railway on this page or with our app
  • Input Kingswear (for Dartmouth) as your destination or origin in the journey planner

This ticket is only available when purchased in advance. Bookings close 23:59 the day prior to travel. Reservations are mandatory.

As well as the steam train journey between Paignton and Kingswear, you will be able to use your valid Dartmouth national rail ticket at no additional cost on the Dartmouth Steam Railway and River Boat Company (DSRRB) foot passenger ferry between Kingswear and Dartmouth. The ferry crossing takes between 5 and 10 minutes.

You are advised to leave Dartmouth 20-30 minutes before the DSRRB train leaves from Kingswear towards Paignton to allow for connections to be made. The ferry service will operate to connect in and out of the DSRRB steam train services arriving and departing at regular intervals.
