Our Covid-19 Response
We have been busy behind the scenes preparing our site for the health, safety and hygiene of our staff & visitors as we re-open 4th July.
In order to safely enter our stations and trams please follow the procedures we have put in place in accordance with government guidelines. We ask that all visitors and passengers follow these new procedures and respect our staff and volunteers as they help keep Seaton Tramway Safe through the following:
- If you or anyone in your household has been experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 (a high temperature, a new persistent cough or a change in sense of taste or smell) within the past 14 days, please don’t visit us. Please come back when everyone is well again.
- Face coverings must be worn on all trams by passengers and where 2m social distancing cannot be achieved unless under 11 or medically exempt.
- From 14th September, you will only be able to visit in groups of up to 6 people. Unless you are visiting as a household or support bubble which is larger than 6
- From 18th September, we must be sure to enforce the group of 6 law. Unless you are visiting as a household or support bubble which is larger than 6

On arrival at Seaton by tram you will use a specified exit. Queuing for the tram at Colyton will now be at the south end of the station – this is the opposite end to which you will alight.

When you cough or sneeze, please cover your nose and mouth with a flexed elbow or tissue.

- Seaton Tramway will be supporting the NHS track and trace by keeping a temporary record of visitor contact details at point of sale.
