    Britannia Royal Naval College

    As the site of officer training for the Royal Navy for over a century, Britannia Royal Naval College in many respects resembles a living museum, not unlike a stately home, in which modern day-to-day life exists in parallel with a rich history and tradition. 

The College is an imposing Edwardian building that stands on Mount Boone overlooking the town of Dartmouth.

    It was designed by Aston Webb, opened in 1905, and is responsible for the initial training of officers for the Royal Navy. Dartmouth has been associated with the training of potential officers since 1863 when the warship, HMS Britannia, arrived in Dartmouth to be the Officer Training College.

    There is a onsite museum looking at the history of Officer Training at Dartmouth and the Britannia Guides with their specialist knowledge and sheer enthusiasm will greatly enhance your visit to the UK premier RN Officer initial training establishment. A two hour Historical Tour is available offering views of the extensive College grounds, Chapels, splendid Quarterdeck and impressive gilded ceiling in the Senior Gunroom, as well as our Parade Ground & Flagstaff.
