The Dartmouth Steam Railway is a 6.7-mile (10.8 km) heritage railway that runs on the former Great Western Railway branch line between Paignton and Kingswear. The trip is a lovely way to travel and see the countryside and coast between the two towns aboard a beautiful Steam Engine. At the destination the ticket includes a return crossing across the River Dart aboard the Dartmouth Passenger Ferry.
The photo shows the 7827 Lydham Manor and was taken from the Dartmouth side of the river, this locomotive’s claim to fame is that in the late 1950’s along with its sister, the 7828 Odney Manor it hauled the royal train.

Dartmouth Museum is a local museum housed in an old merchant’s house that was built in approximately 1640 which, in 1671, entertained Charles II and where he held court during a storm which forced him to stay in the port. The museum moved to its current location in the 1950s and was refurbished during the winters of 2010 and 2011.
The Museum is home to an extensive collection of artefacts, models of sailing ships, ships in bottles, paintings and photographs.

The estuary of the River Dart, which starts at Dartmouth, is a long, narrow tidal ria that runs inland as far as Totnes. The name comes from the Brythonic Celtic meaning “river where oak trees grow”. The river begins as two separate smaller rivers, the East Dart and the West Dart, which converge at the popular tourist spot of Dartmeet.

Although this is a rather smart hotel it does have a proper public bar, the Galleon, which whilst upscale isn't painfully expensive nor exclusive. OK men are expected to have sleeves and collars but it's not a shirt and tie place. The beer's good, all local stuff often featuring one of my personal favourites - Dartmoor's "Jail Ale", and it manages to be quite an egalitarian, characterful, room with its maritime knick-knacks.
Plus there's even bar stools!!

This is a bit of a modern trendy pub these days but still with plenty of character. I think the building dates back to 1838 (when it was called the Union Inn) and externally features what I think is Poole pottery. Inside is cosy in a sort of contemporary rustic fashion with friendly staff and good beer (mostly local brews). The menu looks good with plenty of seafood at very reasonable prices but I haven't had to chance to eat here (yet) simply dropped in for an afternoon pint on a November afternoon.
Nice pub and by all accounts gets lively in the evenings, especially when they have live music and other events - check out the facebook page below:

This is a bit of a scabby town centre pub aimed at a younger crowd and football fans but is friendly enough and the beer and food are reasonably cheap. Much more of a lager drinkers haunt than us real beer people but useful if you want to catch the days sports events.
