HMS Raleigh is the largest Royal Navy training establishment in the South West. It’s made up of  a 239-acre main site, a maritime training centre on the River Lynher, and satellite bases for leadership and team-working exercises on Dartmoor and the Rame peninsular.

The seven schools on site provide a broad spectrum of training, ranging from the Submarine School, to Damage Control and Board & Search, which also train members of the Royal Marines, Royal Fleet Auxiliary and the Royal Navy Reserve.
