One of the main attractions is the Dartmouth Castle which has been the first line of defense and kept the town safe for over 600 years. This castle's beautiful location is now the main attraction for visitors enjoying the relaxing views of the estuary and out to the sea. Standing alongside the castle is the church of St Petrox, the oldest of the three parish churches in town. This church is most popular for weddings due to its stunning location.
Dartmouth's last line of defense, Bayards Cove Fort was built to protect the coastal town. Eleven gunports for heavy artillery were installed surrounding the ground floor on a sea level. It was intended to engage on enemy vessels that have passed along the first line of defense. At present time this fort has been a favorite spot for watching sunset and became one of the most visited area in town.
