Trains to Totnes glide through the rolling hills of South Devon, pulling up in a charming old-fashioned station, a ten-minute walk from the town centre. With Totnes castle looming in the distance, it's a delightful way to enter this hugely cultural town, and the fresh Devon air and friendly faces will soon make visitors feel right at home. Positioned between Exeter and Plymouth, the station is a major lynchpin on the First Great Western service from London Paddington to Penzance. The original signal box, a Grade II listed building, is now used as a cafe.
Known locally for its laid-back vibe, Totnes sits alongside the beautiful waterways of the River Dart and has a truly diverse and cosmopolitan community. A town with great history, there are more listed buildings per person in Totnes than any other town in the UK. The Elizabeth Market, held every Tuesday, is a must-see and a wander up to Totnes Castle is also highly recommended. The high street itself, on a steep incline, is full of quirky little independent shops and buzzes with activity each and every day.
