  • Unfortunately this attraction when we visited. However the walk from Dartmouth was very interesting. Coffee is worth a visit. 
  • Very nice for a drink but I wouldn't buy a cake as they are not covered up. It's been done up recently. Lovely views out to sea 
  • Dartmouth Castle is a small, historic castle on the sea. It is beautifully situated and offers an interesting exhibition, especially of guns. There are very few parking spaces, and is rather adventurous in the high season (narrow streets, much oncoming traffic), is certainly recommended that parking in the city or a park & ride. From the inner city, it is a leisurely walk to the Castle. There are also quite cheap boat taxis. In the summer there was no children's program (it was just pirate days), only the children we were entertained.

  • Definitely a good sight to see! Bit of a long hilly walk to get there, although there is a ferry option from the Dartmouth ferry, if you want to take that. The museum there was informative and the church was free. There were some tickets you could buy to see certain other parts. Would recommend to a friend.
  • Enjoyed it. Got one plus one free voucher. Not sure I'd want to pay the full price for two, but it was definitely worth the visit.
  • Interesting castle, albeit quite small. The entry price was reasonable given the fairly limited amount of castle there was to explore! It was fun to get the little ferry over the Dartmouth, this made it more of an adventure for our daughter and we didn't need to worry about parking (which looked limited).
  • Great experience for both Adults and Children. Easy to reach on foot from Dartmouth or there is a ferry that can take you, which does give you some nice views from the water.
  • Fantastic place. Beautifully kept with great staff entertaining the visitors. The views over Dartmouth are second to none. Love this place.
