For the past 49 years Seaton Tramway has been running from the main car park in Seaton for three miles inland through Colyford to Colyton, much of it along the former Seaton to Seaton Junction branch line between the picturesque estuary of the River Axe and the Axe Estuary Wetlands.
All our double-deck trams have open top decks, providing 360 degree panoramic views, but for inclement days there are enclosed single deck trams making it an all-weather family attraction. The fleet of 14 passenger carrying single and double-deck electric trams were purpose built by the company from classic designs based on heritage trams that served our towns and cities in the first half of the 20th century.
