How to visit by train

Dawlish is a great Regency resort town, famous for the way the railway runs right along the town’s seafront.

The town is centred around a wide open green called The Lawn, which is ideal for games and picnics and the famous black swans.

The long sandy beach is perfect for summer days of swimming, rock pooling or building sandcastles.

You can also hop by train to neighbouring Dawlish Warren and visit the National Nature Reserve.
