The Seaton Pearl will offer a day of swashbuckling fun

Ahoy there me hearties – Seaton tramway is set to host another pirate day.

The popular tourist attraction will be launching the “Seaton Pearl” on Friday (August 2).

The special open single deck tramcar was built at Eastbourne in 1961 and was based on the famous Blackpool “open-boat” tramcars of the 1930s.

There are only 20 seats available, so anyone wanting to go on the swashbuckling ride needs to book by calling 01297 20375 in advance.

The “Seaton Pearl” will depart from Seaton Terminus at 11am, 12.30pm and 2.30pm.

At 3pm the same day Seaton Devon Air Ambulance Week organisers are holding a children’s fancy dress pirate parade. All shipmates should meet at 3pm in Windsor Gardens ready to parade through the town to ‘Tesco Treasure Island’ and a ride on the pirate tram.

The treasure hunt costs £1 per child payable to Captain Barracuda in Windsor Gardens.
