We are the owners of Kingswear Castle, the last remaining operational coal fired paddle steamer in the UK. We take
care of the ship in association with the Paddle Steamer Preservation Society, who provided a loan of 600 to fund
her purchase in 1967. KC now sails on the River Dart in Devon, her original home, on charter to the Dartmouth
Steam Railway and Riverboat Company
who operate her on our behalf.

Take a trip from Dartmouth on the paddle steamer!
What better way to enjoy the wonderful River Dart than from the deck of KC at a gentle steam powered pace.
