Walks from Teignmouth Station

As Visit South Devon quite rightly says "With a classic crescent of Georgian buildings, promenade and long sandy beach Teignmouth is a real hidden gem on the South Devon coast and is both a historic port and classic seaside holiday resort. With traditional seaside holiday attractions all around you won’t need to venture far to keep everyone entertained."

Walks from and around Teignmouth include a walk along the South West Coast Path following the railway, a ferry trip across the Teign to explore Shaldon and optionally further along the coast to the RSPB nature reserve at Labrador Bay.
