Dartmouth Trip Arrangements - 27th June 2015

Dartmouth Day Out – Saturday 27th June

Meet at Tiverton Parkway railway station in plenty of time to park and buy your tickets in time to catch the 9-28am express to Totnes. You need to buy a “Devon Rover” ticket. Anybody contemplating joining the train at Taunton please speak to me first. If you have a railcard your Rover ticket will only cost £6-50p. The Rover is NOT valid from Taunton.
Arriving at Totnes at 10-13am we have time for a coffee before catching the 10-40 “Gold Bus” to Dartmouth. Your bus pass is valid on this service.
You now have lots of time to explore the delights of Dartmouth
How about a boat trip on the dart? The paddle steamer “P S Kingswear” will hopefully be running to either photograph or have a nostalgic cruise.
Or the steam railway is running services to Paignton from Kingswear. (That's the other side of the river)
Then of course Dartmouth is in itself a superb town to explore the shops and back alleys. Plenty of photo opportunities plus many cafe’s or pubs to refresh yourselves.
Then its time to come home – there are several options.
Either catch the bus back to Totnes at 5-35 or 6-50, both connect with a train direct to Tiverton.
Or, go by steam train to Paignton the last one leaves Kingswear at 5-00pm and then the main line train from Paignton direct to Tiverton at 11 minutes past 6-00.
For the really adventurous you could try getting a boat up to Totnes to come home, but that will depend on tides etc. (and its quite a walk from the boat landing stage to Totnes railway station.)
If you require any further info don’t hesitate to give me a ring on 01823 660276
Have a nice day Peter
