Dartmouth Castle 37 Visit other Castles How To Get There


By foot - The castle is a 15-20 minute walk from the centre of the town - proceed up Newcomen Road/South Town away from the town. Turn left at Warfleet. Look out for the stunning views across the River Dart towards Kingswear opposite.


By car: Parking (charge) - Limited ‘Pay and Display’ car park located 12 metres from entrance (not managed by English Heritage). Parking on the access road is free. Disabled visitors may be set down at gate.


By ferry: The Castle Ferry, with its traditional open launches, is one of the best and simplest ways of getting close to the water – an authentic Dartmouth treat. The trip, from the steps on Dartmouth’s South Embankment, takes around ten minutes and ends at the steps below St Petrox church and it’s then a 5 minute steepish walk up from the Stumpy Steps to the castle. Weather permitting, the ferry runs every day of the season from Easter until the end of October: First ferry 10am South Embankment; last ferry 5pm from the castle.


Berry Pomeroy Castle - Tucked away in a deep wooded valley, Berry Pomeroy Castle (near Totnes) is the perfect romantic ruin with a colourful history of intrigue. Within the 15th century defences of the Pomeroy family castle, looms the dramatic ruined shell of its successor, the great Elizabethan mansion of the Seymours. Begun in around 1560 and ambitiously enlarged from around 1600, their mansion was intended to become the most spectacular house in Devon, a match for Longleat and Audley End. Never completed, and abandoned by 1700, it became the focus of blood- curdling ghost stories, recounted in the audio tour. Ideal location for walkers who can explore the nearby beautiful woodland or you can enjoy a light lunch, home-made cake or restorative cup of tea in the café. www.english-heritage.org.uk/berry-pomeroy


Totnes Castle - A classic Norman motte and bailey castle, founded soon after the Conquest to overawe the Saxon town. A later stone shell- keep crowns its steep mound, giving sweeping views across the town rooftops to the River Dart. Climb to the top of the keep to enjoy stunning views over the town of Totnes and across to the River Dart. Or enjoy a picnic in the peaceful grounds under the shelter of age old trees - there is plenty of space for families to relax on a summer’s day. Within easy walking distance of the town, the castle is an ideal addition to any day out in South Devon. www.english-heritage.org.uk/totnes
