Things to do at Dartmouth Royal Regatta in Devon in Regatta Week
You can watch the gig racing from the shore.
Have a go at crabbing on the quay.
Catch streaky bacon loving crabs.
Never cross the Regatta officials.
Gaze at the shops in the town....you might need to look closely here at the prices.
Surely not, or is it because it is Regatta week?
You can follow Amie around. She knows her way around Dartmouth on foot and with a blind fold.
Here she is under the Butter Walk.
You can cross the Dart using the Lower Ferry... if the weather is rough this ferry is more fun than the higher one. Talking to two very senior citizens of Dartmouth yesterday they remembered when it cost 3d to cross from Dartmouth to Kingswear. 3d is the equivalent of one and a half pence. ............
Yesterday it cost £3.20 to cross here. (It's £3.50 on the higher ferry). So really the lower ferry is better value all way round. It's cheaper and you can have a real scary ride. Did I say scary.... I meant fun....fun....fun.....
