Excellent experience in an historic venue, sunny day, great area, a superb experience. I would recommend exploring Dartmouth as it is a lively area with a great sailing fraternity.

Amazing buildings, with a great insight into the training for Naval Officers. The guide, (Mike?) was very informative, with just the right amount of informtaion given, in a way that kept you interested!! We took our 11year old daughter, and yes, at times, she probably found it a little 'boring' or a little above her head, she still enjoyed the... More

I was lucky to win a tour in a RNLI auction and was taken around by the second in command followed by lunch; Really enjoyable experience, learning much about the history behind the college.

Magnificent building towers on the hill above Dartmouth. Must visit for anyone interested in history, particularly Naval history. Contemporary college for cadets in an historic setting.
