AN HIS­TORIC SPOT

Devon Life - - Complete People -

Dat­ing back as far as 1044, Teign­mouth sits on the River Teign and South Devon coast­line.

It has evolved from a large fish­ing port in the 1800s to a pop­u­lar sea­side town with gor­geous sandy beaches for all to en­joy.

The open­ing of the South Devon Rail­way in 1846 has made it a cen­tral lo­ca­tion for dis­cov­er­ing South Devon as lo­ca­tions such as Dart­moor Na­tional Park, Ex­eter and Dawlish are only a short dis­tance away.

To­day, Teign­mouth has a lot to of­fer res­i­dents and vis­i­tors alike with ar­chi­tec­turally sig­nif­i­cant Geor­gian build­ings, lo­cally-sourced food, a range of sport­ing ac­tiv­i­ties and pic­turesque Devon coun­try­side.

Many also visit the Grand Pier, opened dur­ing the Vic­to­rian pe­riod, the The­atre and its va­ri­ety of bars and restau­rants.
