Easter Sunday Fun Day
Lynton and Barnstaple Railway

There’ll be lots of free fun things for kids to do at the Lynton and Barnstaple Railway this Easter Sunday. Fares will still apply for train rides, but it’s a wonderful 2-mile round trip that really acquaints you with some of the prettiest countryside in North Devon. You might spot wildlife such as buzzards and deer as you pass heather-covered hills and wooded valleys – on clear days you can see all the way across to Wales. Board the narrow gauge train at Woody Bay Station where you’ll journey to Killington Lane Halt, where you’re welcome to either ride straight back or leave the train and walk to other local destinations before boarding a later train back.
