The Christmas Train of Lights is now the must-see event in the South West festive calendar. Of course the 2021 show will capture the magic of previous shows – and much more!

The Dartmouth Steam Railway was unable to operate the train in 2020, so they are ready and raring to go this year. They are planning a bigger and better event for its passengers this year! The show can only be viewed from the train as you travel the line from Paignton to Kingswear. The organisers also promise to have a surprise or two up our sleeves for 2021! 🙂

This festive illuminated journey starts at Queen’s Park Station, Paignton

The vintage train and carriages will be decorated with thousands of lights, both inside and out. Fifteen minutes later, the passengers will arrive at Churston Station where the show begins. 15 Minutes after leaving Churston, you will be propelled through the 450-metre Greenway tunnel leading to the Enchanted Forest. The forest will be transformed by thousands of lights with brand new feature displays, as well as some old favourites!

Twinkling Lights on the River Dart

The stunning show ends as you leave the forest only to be greeted by the twinkling lights of Dartmouth reflected on the river Dart. After a turnaround at Kingswear where you can take photographs from the platform, you will be on your way back to Paignton to experience the breathtaking views from a different direction.​
