Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta, August 21 - 26



 

 Imagine steeply wooded hills dropping down to meet a running river where sailboats and brightly coloured trawlers bob at anchor.

Ferries bustle back and forth, seawards you glimpse a cliff top church in the shadow of a protective castle and upstream the majestic Britannia Royal Naval College stands guard over the pretty town.

On the opposite bank a steam train puffs its way alongside the sparkling river and over all reigns an atmosphere of quintessentially English eccentricity and elegance...Welcome to Dartmouth and its sister village of Kingswear.
