  Lying on the eastern bank of the Exe estuary, Topsham was an important coastal port serving Exeter until, in the 19th century, large steam ships found they needed deeper water.
It is now a convivial seaside resort that attracts both artists and birdwatchers.


The oldest properties include the ancient Bridge Inn and a row of Dutch-style houses dating to the 1700s.


Topsham’s splendid museum is housed in a group of 17th century buildings that overlook the beautiful Exe Estuary.
