Add Starcross to your Itinerary

Visit South Devon

Across the Exe Estuary from Exmouth, Starcross is a small waterside village with plenty of railway interest. The village is a popular centre for sailing and is also a good location for bird watching on the Exe Estuary.

History

The remains of one of Brunel's atmospheric railway pumping stations is here, and the modern railway, following Brunel's route, sweeps along the estuary a few feet from the water. A trainspotter's paradise, especially if heritage trains are running (as they do on occasion).

Something a little different

Catch the ferry from Starcross across the Exe Estuary to Exmouth.
