You can find out more about Fort Charles at the nearby Salcombe Maritime Museum. This friendly little museum is a treasure trove of models, paintings, photographs and artefacts which tell the story of Salcombe’s links with ships and the sea from ancient times to the Second World War. In Salcombe Maritime Museum you can see the original key to Fort Charles, cannonballs from the siege and a pair of Sir Edmund Fortescue’s spurs.
Salcombe Castle is also included as a stop along the Walking Through History’ Trail Guide: Salcombe-Bolt Head – Soar Mill Cove walk. The site is also accessible from the South West Coast Path.
