Visiting Dartington

Dartington is a special place to visit all year round

The estate features many fine walks, stunning views and beautiful buildings dating from medieval times to more recently built properties in the International Modernist and Arts and Crafts styles. Over 1000 events take place here each year – from pop concerts to 3D films, exhibitions to opera. Check out what’s on during your visit.

The Visitor Centre

When you arrive, pop into the visitor centre – to learn about what we do and see how it started in the accompanying exhibition. We have historical information, books, leaflets on everything we have to offer on site and a small selection of gifts, including locally made fudge, Dartington books, craftware & pottery, gifts and more. Pick up a map and start exploring.
