  • SPONSORING LOCAL EVENTS

    We are delighted to be involved in the return of the Exmouth Kite Festival after a two year absence!

    Taking place on Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st of May the festival is returning to its location on the Imperial Recreation Ground just by our Stop 7.

    More importantly we have chosen to sponsor the evening concerts that mark the end of the Exmouth Music Festival and the start of the Kite Festival.

    On Friday 29th May The Wurzels will be performing live and on Saturday 30th May it will be Joey The Lips!

    We have decided to offer transport on the Land Train to concert goers to try and take the pressure off the immediate car parks so why not consider hopping aboard rather than joining the inevitable traffic queues?

    More details closer to the date but details are available on the Kite Festival Facebook page www/facebook.com/exmouthkitefestival

    We’ve set our return to service date as Saturday 23rd May.  We know this maybe disappointingly far off for many of our supporters who would like to see us start at Easter.  We have had to factor in the running costs and anticipated passenger numbers for the time between Easter holidays and May half term and this is the resulting decision.

    However!

    That doesn’t mean we are completely off the road.

    The Land Train is available for private hire for groups from now onward!  During the Summer service we will only be able to offer evening hire so why not make the most of our time and have a private tour of Exmouth during the day?

    Fares start from just £3 per person depending on your requirements and include your driver and conductor who will give a live commentary on the sights.  You could even link in with a visit to a local Devon top attraction such as Stuart Line Cruises and World of Country Life or maybe a visit to one of Exmouth amazing independent eateries such as Aby’s Channel View or Antonio’s.

    Maybe you are a teacher and would like to take your school group on a tour to support your classes learning about towns, villages, the history of Exmouth, rivers and seas or  any of the amazing topics in the Curriculum?

    Or maybe you’d like to book the train to get to this year’s Exmouth prom?

    We look forward to hearing from you!

  • WHAT A WEEKEND!

    This weekend was a great moment for the Exmouth Land Train team as we were able to get together aboard our much loved train for the first time in a while.

    With a brand new locomotive engine to pull our three carriages, we attended the Budleigh Food & Drink Festival to provide a tour around the town and a convenient way to get to the festival.

    It was lovely to see some familiar faces from last season come aboard and also to welcome so many new faces.

    Apologies to those drivers who got stuck behind us on the drive back to Exmouth on Sunday afternoon!

    Today we took a delegation of students from France who were visiting Exmouth Community College on a tour of the town.  Now we have tucked the train away for a few weeks whilst we get ready for the new season.

    We are available for private hire from just £150 for up to 50 people, just get in touch with your requirements!
