Known as one of the prettiest coastal towns in the UK, Dartmouth has much more to offer than just beautiful scenery and gorgeous streets. With a vibrant town centre, abundance of history, top events and a welcoming charm, it’s no wonder that Dartmouth makes for a perfect holiday destination all year round.
Towering over the town, sitting upon the hill lays the magnificent structure of the Britannia Royal Naval College, which since 1998 has been the sole base for training Royal Naval officers. With so much to unearth and plenty of Royal links, this beautiful building offers much to marvel at and even guided tours for you to understand more about the history of the base.
Don't forget to visit Dartmouth Castle, resting on the mouth of the River Dart, gazing out to sea. Climb to the top of the battlement for splendid views over Dartmouth town. Or take a ferry boat ride to or from the castle, perfect for wildlife spotting!
Throughout the pretty streets of this colourful town sit a plethora of independent shops, boutiques and galleries as well as some better known brands.
