The Seaton Tramway is an 838 mm (2 ft 9 in) narrow gauge tram line which operates over a former axed British Rail (BR) branch line in Seaton, Devon. The line was converted between 1969 and 1971 by Claude Lane, who had negotiated the sale of the line from BR and who had successfully operated trams in Eastbourne as a visitor attraction.
The three mile route runs through East Devon's Axe Valley, between the coastal resort of Seaton, the small village of Colyford and the ancient town of Colyton.
More than twenty tram cars are part of the visitor attraction which sees about 80,000 visitors per year. The tram cars are reduced-scale (1:2) replicas of classic British tram cars from various cities.
