Dartmoor National Park's landscape is as dramatic as its weather. From its striking granite tors to steep wooded river valleys and from swathes of heather covered moorland to tucked away villages and hamlets. It is a land of contrasts - some people come to experience the tranquillity by getting away from it all, whilst others come to get active. Let us help you to decide.

Under Planning your visit you'll find lots of useful information on travelling here, our Visitor Centres and where to stay - Visit Dartmoor (external website, opens in a new window). You can also check the weather forecast before you set off and, if you are planning to visit the north part of Dartmoor, get timings for live military firing. 

We've got lots of suggestions and advice to help you enjoy a variety of pursuits in Walks and other activities.

Look at What's On for local shows and events, together with guided tours around Higher Uppacott, the Grade 1 listed medieval longhouse.

We welcome visitors from overseas and can provide some general information in French and German.
