stayed in the grand hotel nearby, and enjoyed a walk around this lovely old station. you can hear the sea roaring in the wind it was October gales and very blustery. Our hotel within a few hundred yards of train station so its ideal for people who don't drive.

We travelled by train from Torquay to Paignton. The ticket purchase was prompt, the café on the station platform clean, tidy, cheap and cheerful. Plus the train itself was on time and spotless

Well maintained and decorated in the appropriate style with neat gardens and between the sets of rails a mass of pampas grass. Must not forget the helpful staff and easy access.

What can you say, nostalgic, comfortable and just gently meanding ahead so you have plenty of time to look out of the windows taking in all the sights along the way. There are lots of options to just taking the train or combing it with a bus and a boat trip for looking at the various areas or sights. We... More
