Visiting Dartmouth - what, where and how

With Dartmouth Regatta currently taking place, finishing with a packed day of events tomorrow (01/09), we thought it was a good time to share more information on visiting Dartmouth:

Dartmouth is a beautiful town on the banks of the river Dart. It’s home to numerous events and festivals throughout the year, with the Dartmouth Regatta being a highlight. There is lots to see and do whenever you visit, from great shops and places to eat, to visiting the impressive castle and taking a walk on the stunning coastal path.

How do I get there?

The best way to get to Dartmouth from Torbay is by bus from Paignton. The 120 bus runs from Paignton bus station to Kingswear, then from Kingswear, a short ferry across the river (all part of the fun!) will get you to Dartmouth.

Cost of bus: If you have a Torbay Megarider bus pass, this will get you to Kingswear. If not, a Torbay Dayrider will give you unlimited transport in Torbay for the day (including Kingswear) for £5. Or, if you are travelling in a group, a group dayrider costs just £10 and can be used for up to five people. Click here for a timetable

Cost of ferry: the Lower Ferry costs £1.50 each way per person

Dartmouth Regatta

The Regatta is an extremely popular event based around a programme of rowing and sailing events, but also incorporates a busy programme of activities including live music, fireworks, a large fair, and many other smaller events that happen in and around the town centre.
An extended bus service also operates during the Regatta.

A full timetable can be found here:

But it's not just the Regatta that makes Dartmouth worth visiting, it's picturesque location, unique shops and castle all make it worth a visit anytime!
