THE BRITANNIA ROYAL NAVAL COLLEGE


The Royal Navy has had a link with Dartmouth since 1863 when young cadets were taught on the training hulks Britannia and Hindostan which were moored on the river. The Britannia Royal Naval College we see perched on the hill today was built a little later in 1905. It is the only remaining naval college in the country and accepts men and women from all over the world who come to Dartmouth for their initial naval officer training. The working college has a rich history standing strong through two world wars and it was there, in 1939, that a young and eager Prince Philip first met Princess Elizabeth. Since then many royals have attended lectures in the historic classrooms including Prince William. There are some college traditions which haven’t changed in the past 100 years; everyone has to salute or come to attention when they enter the historic quarterdeck (main hall) and cadets in their first stage of training have to march through the corridors. Public tours take place throughout the year on Mondays and Wednesdays and last approximate- ly 2 ¼ hours. Visitors are shown a glimpse of life behind the famous front doors, including the elegant chapel, busy dining room, senior gun room and Britannia Heritage Museum. The museum houses a variety of naval artefacts
