We arrived here having visited another local castle and managed to get a parking space right outside Dartmouth castle and on a day when the parking meters were not working either. We went into the ticket office and behind the ticket desk we were stunned at the amazing view across the harbour entrance. We proceeded downstairs, and there was a room full of cannons. I was a bit disappointed as there was not much to see in this room and wondered if we had come all this way for nothing, but then we went to the gun tower which is on several levels. It is amazing to read the history of the tower, seeing the original floor level. There are some fantastic views from the gun tower over to Dartmouth harbour.
