For over 600 years Dartmouth Castle has stood in a superb waterfront setting guarding the narrow entrance to the Dart estuary. Why not travel from Dartmouth to this historical attraction by water? Take the castle ferry from Dartmouth quayside along the banks of the River Dart to the landing stage close to the castle.
The gun tower was probably the first fortification in Britain to mount heavy cannon. Discover tales from the long and colourful past. Experience the sights and sounds of the great guns in a fully recreated Victorian gun battery.
Climb to the battlements and enjoy the splendid views across the estuary and complete your stay with a visit to the nearly St Petrox Church and the castle tearoom.
