Embark on a nostalgic journey with Atlantic Rail and Ceres Rail to Simonstown! Departing from the Harbour Bridge Platform (AC Marriot Hotel), Cape Town, this picturesque rail adventure promises a delightful 3-hour trip through the scenic Cape landscape to the charming seaside town of Simon’s Town.

Upon reaching Simonstown between 11 and 11h30, you’ll have ample time to explore the town, indulge in a leisurely lunch, and peruse the local museums. The station is a short 800 meter walk from the heart of town, offering you a delightful stroll; there are also TukTuks and shuttles available.

As the day unfolds, we bid farewell to Simonstown at 14h30, bringing you back to Cape Town by approximately 17h30. Don’t miss out on this exceptional adventure – book your seat now and join us as we discover the allure of Simon’s Town together!

Customer Reviews


A wonderful trip bringing back many special memories. Staff very attentive and kept us informed the whole trip. Loved the touch of the Navy Band welcoming us. Really a super fanfare marking the return of the Steam Locomotive. - Sheila
