How to get there

For those travelling by car, you have two choices: you can follow the A380 towards Torquay and then follow signs to Brixham and then Kingswear; or you can come along the A38 through Totnes and then follow signs from the town towards Dartmouth. The journey will take a little under an hour from Exeter either way. The former is the quickest route, but requires the ferry if you are coming to Dartmouth with doesn't run late at night and can be busy during peak season.

The closest railway station is at Paignton, from where there is a regular bus service that leaves roughly once an hour and takes about 25 minutes to reach Kingswear from where you can get the passenger ferry to Dartmouth.

There are regular buses out of Kingswear to Torbay and from Dartmouth into the many towns and villages of the South Hams. Depending on the season and the tide, the most enjoyable way of travelling to and from Dartmouth is undoubtedly on the water.
