SOUTH DEVON RAILWAY Season Opening Weekend 2018

This Spring, to raise the curtain on our new season, over the weekend of Saturday and Sunday 16th & 17th March, for every ticket you buy you get another free (The lowest priced ticket will be the free one). Customers buying tickets on our website should buy one ticket and select the free option for their second one. A great family day out and a great price too!

Countryside lovers will be able to see and enjoy some stunning spring scenery from the comfort of the trains as they meander their leisurely way down one of Devon’s most glorious valleys by the River Dart which is now carpeted with beautiful daffodils and primroses, and walkers can take advantage of some relaxing walks and see the flowers from stations too.
