Take a trip back in time and travel on the majestic Dartmouth Steam Railway between Paignton & Kingswear.
I’ve been asked to make a 360º pub guide, so if your wondering what its like inside you’ll find out here. You’ll find a growing list of different establishments appearing as I explore with the camera in & out of Torbay.
Mansands is a stunning secluded pebble beach and is best on low tide as it exposes the sand. Behind the beach is a brackish lagoon. This is a haven for birds and there are information boards and a bird hide managed by the National Trust. Grass snakes inhabit the area around the lagoon and can occasionally be seen swimming in the water.
There are always some sort of events happening in and around the bay, especially in the summer. Here’s a list of the ones Im aware of, plus ones close by. If I’ve missed any please let me know.
If your walking and you want to get straight to the heart of Dartmouth, this ferry drops you off right next to the harbour smack in the middle of the town center.
I always use the lower ferry when travelling to and from Dartmouth, the staff are always friendly, it has great views either side and its cheaper than the higher ferry.
A picturesque walk around Waterhead Creek in Kingswear. Follow around the creek and through the woods above the creek. Look out for wildlife, boats on moorings and of course the stunning views across the creek to the river Dart.
