The top sights in Dartmouth

The Newcomen Engine Museum is also a must-see attraction. It displays Newcomen's engine, the first steam engine built, in all its full glory. If you're lucky you might even see the engine in operation.
The Dartmouth Steam Railway is another highlight. The station is at Kingswear, across the river, and the steam railway line runs from there to the nearby town of Paignton, running through some spectacular countryside en route. Note that this line also links with river boat cruises that ru nfrom Dartmouth up the River Dart to Totnes, stopping en route at Dittisham.

Note that regular boat trips run from the River Dart to Paignton and Torquay in Torbay during the summer.
Just down the line from Paignton, about 15km from Dartmouth, is Torquay, or the 'English Riviera'. Here, you'll find about 20 beaches linked with coastal footpaths. Torre Abbey Sands is perhaps the best beach, and also boasts some fine gardens at Torre Abbey. Babbacombe Beach is another excellent choice. Visitors can also visit its model village, set within stunning landscaped gardens.
Another great destination in Torquay is Cockington Court. This is a craft centre in a picturesque 460-acre country park, which includes woodlands, rose gardens and ornamental ponds.
