A quaint, picturesque town to drive through but nothing else! Thoroughly disappointed it didn't seem to have a lot more to offer in terms of shops or refreshments. If your crossing the river by car ferry make sure you get in line and don't push in front! We drove through Kingswear to get across to Dartmouth but they do not... More

Very informative journey up the river towards Agatha Christie house. Lots of interesting things to see on the way including seals!! Could be a bit cheaper but we thought the fee included entrance to her house as well! It didn't.... Staff help you on and off boat. You can sit outside or inside. Plenty of seats. Easy to get tickets... More

However we really enjoyed it . Check out the tide times though as first of all we tried to scramble... More

Caught the Clipper to visit Greenway and a very pleasant 30 minute trip there and back. Boat is family owned and a very good commentary about the surrounding area as we made our way along the River Dart.

Then leave at 3:30 and reach Torquay by 5;15. We utterly enjoy the trip as the weather was pleasant. Not a trip for raining or cold day. Small hot... More

This ferry runs from kingswear across to Dartmouth. Its a big wooden floating raft that takes several cars at a time.there is a charge. A boat pushes it across the water.and you remain in your car and drive off the other side.gets busy in summer .with a line of cars waiting to board!

Really good commentater on the ferry. He was a local man with lots of information. Was very lucky with weather, any colder and would not have been as enjoyable, however we were on the front of the ferry so you could go inside.

It was the last day of the Easter holidays. It was supposed to be the warmest of the year so far. My fault probably. Really shouldn't have smart ideas. Get up early. Drive 200 miles. Get breakfast. Catch steam train to Kingswear, catch ferry to Dartmouth, catch Greenway Ferry Dartmouth to Greenway House. All good. I got up. Car started.... More
