'Kingswear Castle' Discount to Continue

In 2014 passengers on The Torbay Express who pre-book a paddle steamer river cruise directly with the operators via their website will again be able to claim a 10% discount. Paddle Steamer 'Kingswear Castle' is the last remaining coal-fired paddle steamer in operation in the UK today and will again be cruising on the River Dart.


Enjoy a nostalgic cruise along the lower reaches of the river Dart where the sounds and smells will transport you back in time to an era when these ships were the life blood of the community. This relaxing tour starts and ends in Dartmouth and passes Bayards Cove, Warfleet Creek, both Dartmouth & Kingswear Castles, Britannia Royal Naval College, Noss boat yard, the quaint village of Dittisham and the Greenway Estate, former home of the late Dame Agatha Christie.

Raffle raises funds for Wallace & Gromit's Children's Foundation

Raffles organised by the team of volunteer Stewards aboard 2012 Summer’s Torbay Express steam trains raised over £2,000 for the Wallace and Gromit's Children’s Foundation. The Torbay Express would like to thank the Stewards for all their hard work and the passengers who so generously and kindly contributed.


The Wallace and Gromit’s Children’s Foundation, based in Bristol, is a national charity for children’s health that raises money for sick children in hospitals and hospices throughout the UK. Every year across the UK millions of children are treated in hospitals and hospices. Some suffer from common childhood illnesses whilst others face serious and possibly life-changing conditions such as cancer or leukemia. Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Foundation provides comfort, state of the art equipment, family facilities and entertainment such as art, music and play therapy to hundreds of thousands of sick kids each year. It is the only children’s charity supporting sick kids in hospitals and hospices throughout the UK.
