Escorted Rail Tours to Dartmouth

One of Britain's most influential ports

Enjoying a location within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Dartmouth is one of the region's most popular towns. Here working fishing boats and small leisure vessels congregate at the harbour, overlooked by historic, sloping streets lined with 17th century buildings. The town has always been a strategic port, owing to its natural deep-water setting. Some of the 12th century crusades were launched from here, and by the mid-14th century Edward III sited the Royal Navy in the town. Dartmouth has seen activity in almost every sea-based conflict since - in the Second World War it was a base for US forces, and served as a launch point for D-Day landings.

More about Dartmouth

A historic port town
Naturally, much of Dartmouth's town grew around its port, and today there are a number of buildings dating back to the Tudor period, that were initially used for ship repairs and woodwork. These idyllic buildings and streets - in particular Smith Street - are now a major tourist attraction, as are the stalls in the cobbled market place and the array of shops on the waterfront.
