Kingswear Castle Paddle Steamer
The UK’S only coal fired paddle steamer
2013 brings a local initiative stirring fond memories in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The river Dart, which for centuries provided a transport highway up and down this Devon waterway, will regain the last coal fired paddle steamer carrying passengers in the UK, the Kingswear Castle.
The decision was taken to return the KC to her home waters before the next season begins and she will run Dartmouth River Cruises and cruises between Dartmouth and Totnes, meaning passengers can now journey on her as part of the famous Round Robin excursion. So, this award winning circular tour has just got even better! The all inclusive ticket includes a steam train ride, a bus journey, connecting ferry and river cruise on the beautiful river Dart on the paddle steamer Kingswear Castle.
