This special and unique one day tour will give you a fantastic insight into the history rich area of South Devon. It can be tailored somewhat to suit your interests, but one thing is for sure, you will gain a great deal of fascinating knowledge during this day. Dartmouth is a town of great seafaring history, with the 12th century Crusades setting out from here. You will have time to get a feel for this beautifully located place, and your tour at the Naval College will only enhance your knowledge of naval and royal history.

Throughout the day you will see magnificent scenery, with photographic opportunities aplenty. Fine food, according to your tastes, will be on the lunch menu, as well as a traditional Devonshire cream tea towards the end of the afternoon!
