Railway Travel to Torquay & The English Riviera

It is possible to reach Torquay by train from most parts of the UK and the services are largely efficient and well run. For most journeys to and from Torquay there will be a necessity to change either at Newton Abbot or Exeter. There are comparatively few daily direct services to Torquay from elsewhere in the country.

Apart from being a relaxing way to travel, one of the great attractions of travelling to Torquay by train is the section of the journey that passes by Dawlish and where the train track runs alongside the sea with the most magnificent sea views.

The Muntham Apartments and Town House are about a ten minute taxi ride away from Torquay station.

Train Services To And From Torquay

The biggest operator of trains to and from Torquay and The English Riviera is Great Western Railways (formerly First Great Western). Their services generally originate or end at London's Paddington Station which means they have good connections with London Heathrow Airport. As Inter city trains, the rolling stock is generally new and comfortable and there is normally a buffet service available on the trains.

There are good railways connections to and from other parts of the UK and rail services run as far as The Midlands, Yorkshire, Tyneside and on up into Scotland as far as Aberdeen. These services are operated by Cross Country Trains.

There are normally a plentiful supply of taxis available at Torquay Railway Station especially at times of train arrivals. There is also a Thrifty Car Hire Office located in the station buildings.

Book Railway Tickets In Advance For The Cheapest Fairs

Compared with other parts of the World, British train fairs can seem quite pricey. However, it is possible to get reasonably priced tickets by booking as far as possible in advance.

The golden rule is not to buy tickets at the railway station on the day of travel as these will be the most expensive tickets.

Tickets can be bought online and then actually collected from machines at any station prior to travel using the code given purchased over the internet.

Even more conveniently, it is also possible to download an app to your phone from the train company and buy an 'e' ticket saving the need to bother with a paper ticket at all.
