Pick ups are: 32 Buckland Rd, Yeovil Bus Station (5), Beechwood Care Home on West Coker Road (NEW) Glenthorne Avenue Morrisons (NEW) The Arrow Forum Bus Stop, Sherborne Greenhill Bus Stop & Platinum Skies, Martock Pinnacle, Somerton The Square, Ilchester The Square, Ilminster The Square & Wincanton Memorial Car Park

We pick you up from your chosen pick up points, take you to Paignton for you to stretch your legs and have some free time before we board the boat. Once you are off the boat you will have more free time to stretch your legs & settle your bellies before heading home.

Travel on the steam railway from Paignton to Kingswear, then cross the River Dart on our foot passenger ferry to Dartmouth, where you board one of our boats for a circular River Cruise (approximately 1hr duration) around the river and estuary. The cruise takes you to the mouth of the river passing Kingswear & Dartmouth Castles, Dittisham village, Britannia Royal Naval College and Greenway House – home to the late Dame Agatha Christie. Tell the children to keep their eyes peeled for the varied wildlife that can be seen – Dolphins, Seals, Herons, Egrets, Buzzards and Kingsfisher if you’re quick enough!

On your return to Dartmouth there’ll be time to look around, go shopping and have some lunch before going back to Kingswear for your return steam train ride to Paignton.
