- Bayard's Cove was used in several TV productions, such as The Onedin Line, a BBC TV drama series which ran from 1971 until 1980. Many of the scenes from BBC's series 'Down to Earth' with Ricky Tomlinson, were filmed at different locations around the town.
- Major tourist attractions in Dartmouth include Dartmouth Castle, Dartmouth Royal Naval College and Dartmouth Steam Railway terminating at Kingswear on the opposite river bank.
