“More than i thought”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

We went on a grey and dismal day but ggod day to visit as it was quiet. Parking can be a problem on a busy day. Interesting place and good for kids.Cannons and cannon balls are plentiful. Look in the church and see in the aisle the flat stone on the floor, looks like a pirate!

“Too expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

So many people walk out to this spot then dont go into the Casdtle because with 2 or 4 it is just too expensive. If they halved the prices (maybe outside of summer school holidays)I sure they would get far more visitors

“Stunning location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

Took a slow amble along the river from Dartmouth, and explored the castle in our own time. Stunning views of the estuary, and interesting exhibitions of the castle history and canons etc. Took a fishing boat back to town to complete a nice morning

“Historic meander”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

lovely walk from the centre(about a mile)This is where we defend the town from attacks by sea !
Cant recommend the `stewed` tea in the small cafe though.
Well worth a visit.
