Totnes - according to "The Telegraph" - has earned a reputation "for a level of eccentricity beyond the usual cream tea and antiques shop fare" that often characterises many Devon day trips. This alone should make it a place to visit! Sitting in the heart of South Devon on the banks of the River Dart, this historic market town combines beautiful countryside and fascinating history. It is renowned for its diverse community, unique shops and relaxed atmosphere.
So what do do here? Well, when you've got over the surprise of being served by the locals clothed in traditional period dress at the Elizabethan market (Tuesdays, May-September only), you can explore in and around Totnes. There are boat trips to enjoy, art galleries to visit, Totnes Castle to discover or a ride on a steam railway. The kids will enjoy a day trip to Pennywell Farm or a family canoe trip up the River Dart.
When you visit Devon don't miss out on this wonderful town!
