A traditional Victorian seaside resort on the beautiful South Coast, Teignmouth is full of both historic and pretty Georgian and Victorian architecture. The still running local steam railway and river boat trips hark back to the glory days of seaside holidays and the Victorian pier jets out into the sea along part of the sandy beach and commands views over the English Channel.
Said to be a town of two halves, Teignmouth has both a beautiful harbour side and spectacular seafront, which are both distinctive from one another. With all the excitement of the pier, yet the relaxing surroundings of the harbour side on your doorstep, you’ll have the best of both worlds during holidays in Teignmouth.
This coastal town in South Devon lies on the tip of the English Riviera and is the perfect destination for a traditional seaside holiday. There’s a selection of golden sandy beaches to choose from, amusement arcades and rides, as well as Teignmouth’s very own heated lido. The Town Beach also offers adventure golf, a skate park and you can also hire deckchairs for a spot of sunbathing. Families, couples and groups alike, really will be in their element! For those with four legged friends, Teignmouth’s River Beach is dog friendly all year round, meaning your pooch is more than welcome to come on holiday with you too!
The beautiful scenery of the area offers some wonderful walks, with footpaths reaching as far as Dartmoor for those wanting to challenge themselves. Another great way to make the most of the estuary, with its far reaching views towards Dartmoor, would be to rent a pleasure boat and admire the surroundings from the water. There are also many opportunities for those that enjoy watersports to get active, with kayaking, sailing and paddle boarding on offer to name just a few.
Head into the pretty town centre and you’ll find plenty of traditional fish and chip shops, fine seafood restaurants offering the freshest daily catch and a collection of fun seaside foods such as delicious local ice creams. Not only this, but you’ll also come across an assortment of lovely shops, ideal for finding mementos and souvenirs of your Teignmouth holiday.
