Overview

The Dartmoor National Park Visitor Centre at Postbridge is staffed by knowledgeable local people, who will be happy to help with advice and ideas on your visit to the Dartmoor area. The Life, Death and Landscape exhibition, telling the story of prehistoric Dartmoor, is on show at the Visitor Centre with Bronze Age Dartmoor finds from the Royal Albert Memorial Museum's collection - and, for the first time on Dartmoor, there is a display showcasing replicas of items found in the internationally important Whitehorse Hill prehistoric burial. Some of these were part of the recent major exhibition at Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery, whilst some have not been on public display before We stock an extensive range of maps, guide books and publications about Dartmoor, as well as a range of useful items for the outdoor enthusiast and a variety of gifts and stationery. There are public toilets with disabled access. Postbridge is our most centrally situated Visitor Centre in the heart of the moor. It is easily accessible and the drive from either Exeter or Plymouth takes you through some of the most stunning moorland landscapes. Postbridge provides an excellent gateway to the north moor for enthusiastic hill walkers and our Centre staff will be pleased to help you to plan a suitable route. The weather can be very changeable on the high moor and walkers should be adequately equipped for anything more than a short stroll.

A lovely lady welcome us as we walked in. Told as about the activities upstairs for the children. Lots of advice for the area. Pay to park large car park. Free toilets. Lovely choice of gifts to suit any budget. Definitely worth a visit.

Along with the range of maps and gifts, there is a Bronze Age exhibition upstairs. The staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgable. There are Public Toilets attached. Free car parking but donations support the running costs

The shop is good for finding gifts and souvenirs and the Bronze Age exhibition is wonderfully informative and easy for children to engage in dressing up and learning without knowing so!

Stopped in here after my walk in the park. Lots of detailed information about the park and the lady working behind the counter was especially friendly.

Parking with loos at a Dartmoor visitor hotspot. Small shop selling useful stuff for walkers and visitors through to gifts and memorabilia. Interesting and informative interpretation of life on the Moor too.
