An Award Winning Destination for Disabled Vistors
All our stations are suitable for access by disabled people who are warmly welcomed.
There is plenty of car parking at Buckfastleigh. Our trains have disabled access and reserved spaces for wheelchair users*.
Buckfastleigh station is the best starting point for your journey as we have easy, flat access and parking very close to the platform.
Our station at Totnes is only accessible via a footpath link and is some 500 yards from the nearest parking at Totnes National Rail station.
Please note that our dining trains do not have reserved spaces for wheelchair using passengers and the doors of the dining train carriages are narrower than the width of standard wheelchairs. However, we would urge you to contact us so we can help meet your specific requirements.
