Reasons for trip

Totnes is a lovely town in Devon with an old castle keep. We had never been to Totnes before and arrived by train for the day. The station is a short walk from the shopping area. We enjoyed walking through the old cobbled streets with all their interesting shops, and a busking jazz singer in the square as we wound our way up High Street, past St. Mary’s Church, to the Castle. No high street names here, all the shops looked to be individual boutiques. Totnes Castle is an English Heritage Property. It is a Norman motte and bailey castle and costs £3.70 for adults and £3.30 for concessions. Although there is not much of the castle left to see, the views of the town and the River Dart from the Castle keep are lovely. There are only vending machines for drinks onsite but there are picnic tables if you want to take a picnic and lots of green grass at the foot of the keep. There is not much parking if you arrive by car but the castle is only a short walk from the parking in town. We had lunch in one of the many restaurants in town then walked down to the river but discovered we had missed the cruise to Dartmouth so headed back to the train and onto other adventures in Devon.
