Travel Timehop #9 – Dartmouth
When are we time-hopping to?
It’s a small hip, skip and jump back to 2013 – the year Tin Box Tot was born and we spent our first summer holiday away in Tin Box.
Where in the world?
We had pitched our caravan in Devon and were enjoying a visit to Dartmouth, which is a special place for Mr Tin Box and I as it is where we got engaged. The legend goes that Mr TB was coming to the end of a stint of training at Britannia Royal Naval College (BRNC) and decided to pop the question following his passing out parade.
The town itself is a quintessential small English port. It has so much character and, as you would expect, is a magnet for tourists in the summer months.
We love browsing the independent shops and, back in the days before TBT, enjoying meals in its many lovely restaurants. There’s also a fantastic selection of B&Bs and hotels that cater to the families of students at BRNC all year round, as well as tourists in the summer.
After this picture was taken we continued up river, past Agatha Christie’s holiday home Greenway, and on to Dittisham where we crossed the river and had lunch. There’s more about what we got up to in my post about our first summer holiday in Tin Box.
