Take a Trip on Kingswear Castle

KC Leaving at Dartmouth 6th July 2020.

Kingswear Castle is now running one hour harbour cruises from Dartmouth at 12 noon, 1.30pm and 3pm every day except Fridays which is her maintenance day.

The Dartmouth Steam Railway and River Boat Company, which operates Kingswear Castle, are proud to have been accredited by VisitEngland as “Good To Go” – the industry standard for reopening following COVID-19. Click here to view our certificate.

So if you fancy a trip on a coal-fired paddle steamer maybe combined with a ride on the Paignton to Kingswear steam railway then tickets can be booked online in advance.
