Join IC Travel as we head to the West Country to Taunton for our 6-day break.  During our time our excursions will include Tiverton Horse-drawn barge canal cruise, the Seaton Tramway, West Somerset Steam Railway, Bicton Park Botanical Gardens and Minehead with other excursions being added around the area.

Being one of the last remaining Horse-Drawn Barges in Great Britain, a trip on the “Tivertonian” offers a truly unique and memorable living heritage experience of a time before steam . . Expect a magical time on your trip getting to know the staff, heavy horses, barge and wildlife.

Seaton Tramway operates narrow gauge heritage trams between Seaton, Colyford and Colyton in East Devon’s glorious Axe Valley, travelling alongside the River Axe estuary through two nature reserves and giving an unrivalled view of the abundant wading bird life.

The coastal resort of Seaton is now a gateway town to the Jurassic Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, whilst the historic town of Colyton is described as “Devon’s Most Rebellious Town” for its part in the Monmouth Rebellion of 1685.
