A busy Dartmoor town, Yelverton stands at the heart of a region made famous by the great English adventurer Sir Francis Drake who lived in the former monastery of Buckland Abbey.

It is now managed by the National Trust and hosts exhibitions about the life of this remarkable English hero. Other major attractions include gardens within the ruins of a medieval vicarage and the Yelverton Paperweight Centre.
