Passenger Ferries

Our passenger ferries operate between March-October and there’s no better way of exploring our towns and coastline than getting out onto the open waters and best of all, if you’re lucky enough you may even spot a pod of Dolphins swimming alongside you.

The Western Lady Ferry Service is operated by the Dartmouth Steam Railway and Riverboat Company and operates from North Quay, Torquay Harbour, running regular passenger ferries between Torquay and Brixham. They also offers family fishing trips, wildlife cruises and evening cruises during the season.

Paignton Pleasure Cruisies run regular Torquay to Paignton and Brixham ferry service plus offer wildlife cruises and best of all, the ferries are dog friendly.


Steam Train

The Dartmouth Steam Railway from Paignton runs for seven miles in Great Western tradition along the spectacular Torbay coast to Goodrington Sands, Churston and through the wooded slopes bordering the Dart estuary and on to Kingswear. The scenery is superb, with seascapes right across Lyme Bay to Portland Bill on clear days.



Cycling on the English Riviera is an ideal way to explore our stunning coastline and enjoy a leisurely cycle with the family by the beach and best of all there are plenty of places to stop off to enjoy a light snack, ice cream or a delicious Devon cream tea.

Torbay Cycle Hire in Paignton have a great range of bikes to choose from and if you’re not keen on navigating any hills then why not cheat and rent one of their electric bikes.

Our cycle routes cater for all whether experienced or inexperienced and this map and guide is useful to decide what works best for you and your family.
