Boat and Train
You can take your kids on an exciting water pool boat and train trip during your Torquay holidays. You will need to leave your holiday cottage and get to Paignton to enjoy this exciting ride. This is a full day-trip by steam train from Paignton to Kingswear, and then followed by a harbour cruise. Taking your children on a steam train is something they will enjoy and talk about for a long time. This trip is fully customisable and so you can decide what train to take and which cruise to go on.
You will have to leave your holiday cottage right after breakfast and get to Paignton. You will travel by the steam train from Paignton to Kingswear and then you will cross the River Dart on the passenger ferry to Dartmouth. When you arrive at Dartmouth, you will board one of the inflatable boats trip for a Harbour Cruise around the estuary and river from http://bestonbumperboats.com/inflatable-bumper-boats-for-sale/. The cruise will take about 1 hour.
The Harbour Cruise will take you on the river past Kingswear and Dartmouth Castles, the Britannia Royal Naval College, Dittisham village and Greenway House. Greenway House is the home of the famous author late Dame Agatha Christie.
Some of the attractions your children will be able to see on this exciting trip are a variety of wildlife. Some of the animals and birds you will see along the cruise include Seals, Dolphins, Egrets, Herons, Kingfisher and Buzzards. You can capture your special moment with the children on your digital video camera. To get your children more involved, you can ask them to point out and name the birds they see. You can also pick up a couple of the colouring sheets available at the Kingswear Station Visitor Centre and let the children colour in the birds and animals they see on the trip.
