I always use the lower ferry when travelling between Kingswear & Dartmouth, the staff are always friendly, it has great views either side and its cheaper than the higher ferry.
The ferry has been transporting vehicles and foot passengers between Dartmouth and Kingswear since the 1700’s. The Ferry is operated using a floating platform pushed along by a tug carrying up to 8 cars. The crossing offers lovely views of Dartmouth, Kingswear, Britannia Royal Naval College, Dartmouth Castle and the open sea. There are records of a Kingswear Ferry as early as 1365.
The Lower Ferry operates 7 days a week all year, apart from Christmas Day.
