Dartmouth Castle stands in a superb waterside location, guarding the entrance to the Dart estuary. Magnificent battlement views and a fascinating history make the Castle the perfect venue for a great day out.

For 500 years the Castle was kept in constant preparation for war, and was still in active service during both World Wars.

Visitors can see the remains of this small fortress today, explore the 15th century castle, see the completely recreated Victorian gun battery and climb to the battlements for the spectacular views.

New features include 'hands-on' exhibitions and displays bringing to life the 600 year history of the castle, from Chaucer to World War II. Toilets nearby not EH
