The Seaton Tram
The village of Colyton is a delight to explore with its historic square. In 1685 it was known as Devon's Most Rebellious Town during the Monmouth Rebellion . It is known for bird watching opportunities too but one of the most popular reasons to visit is to experience the Electric Tram. The Seaton Tram starts in Colyton and is a narrow gauge track that snakes through the countryside and across the wetlands and estuary to Seaton. The fleet of trams date from the 1950s and have been lovingly restored to carry visitors today complete with authentic fittings. It is a delightful and unusual way to arrive at the seaside and admire the scenic views or wander along the shoreline.
