Ways With Words, Dartington

On 8th July 2022 to 19th July 2022 Dartington Trust, Totnes, Devon, TQ9 6EL

A flamboyant and lively literary festival! This is where the readers of books meet those who write them - and all in the fabulous setting of Dartington Hall. This festival has been taking place for well over a quarter of a century where people of all ages come to share the pleasure of words and the power of language. Guests speakers abound!

  • A thoroughly enjoyable day out - I was very impressed with the organisation, it was always very clear where we were supposed to go and what time we were supposed to be somewhere - would happily do it again.
  • Absolutely amazing day out - Easy booking online and due to social distancing you have a set seat. Fabulous weather made the views even better and you can smell the fumes of the engine. Ticket includes return ferry to Dartmouth. Friendly helpful staff.
  • Atmospheric steam train - We took the steam train from Paignton to Kingswear and then the ferry to Dartmouth (inc in the ticket). It was a trip back in time and most enjoyable, despite the very rainy weather! Good value for money.
