Trains to Teignmouth traverse the charming south Devon coast before turning inland and running alongside to the River Teign. It's a marvellous way to enter this quaint town, which boasts classic Georgian architecture, a charming promenade and long sandy beaches. The station was opened by the South Devon Railway Company in 1846, and rebuilt in 1895 to match the distinctive grey stone facade of other West Country resort stations. It's the second busiest station on the Riviera Line, after Newton Abbot.
Teignmouth has two main areas: the sea front and the harbour side. The station is ideally located for both, with easy access to the cafes and chippies of the town centre, as well as to the beach and the South West Coast Path beyond. History buffs should head to the Teign Heritage Centre, but for some classic seaside fun head to the sea front, where you'll find the promenade, Victorian pier, lido and crazy golf course.
