Glorious Summer Time in Dartmouth
Enjoy summer family getaways and school holidays in the beautiful coastal resort of Dartmouth.
There’s so much to do in Dartmouth during the summer, one stay is never enough. The beautiful River Dart is alive with all kinds of craft from cruise liners and yachts to family cruisers, kayaks, paddle boards – whatever floats your boat.
Hop across to Kingswear on the ferry, stroll the sunny South West Coast Path or let the local steam train take the strain. Soak up the sun outside a café, pub or bistro with a cappuccino or something cooler and stronger.
Youngsters have it made with crabbing, canoe adventures, sailing, cycling, marine centres, zoos and exploring to look forward to and fantastic nearby sandy beaches. Art and culture lovers can browse the galleries, independent shops, local market and Elizabethan lanes to their heart’s content.
And there’s always something to celebrate in Dartmouth from Galleries Week, Crabbing Day, Shakespeare Week and the Flower Festival to our centrepiece Dartmouth Royal Regatta, culminating in fireworks and a Red Arrows aerial flypast. There’s something for everyone here to love – and love coming back for.
