Dartsmouth Travel Guide

The town oozes an almost hypnotic charm, the narrow streets evoke a realistic glimpse into the past, Browns Hill, The Butterwalk and Foss Street are fine examples. Higher Street was the centre of the old town and has many old restored buildings including The Cherub a 14th century public house. The Quay and The Boat Float is always a hive of activity. The Boatfloat is an inner harbour created on reclaimed land and now home to dozens of small pleasure boats. The Quayside area is surrounded by some fine Georgian and earlier buildings many now hotels, cafes and restaurants. The cobbled Bayard’s Cove is a peaceful waterfront spot on the edge of the town where the restored Bearscove Castle can be seen. Dartmouth Castle managed by English Heritage is a worthwhile short walk or ferry ride from the town centre. Shopping in Dartmouth is worthy of all the superlatives regularly heaped on the town’s stores. A shopping centre not dominated by the major national multiples is rare, but successfully achieved in Dartmouth. There are plenty of small boutiques, antique shops, delicatessens and other speciality shops.
