A charming seaside town, Dawlish sits on the edge of rolling Devon countryside where it meets the sea. It was a favourite haunt of the writer Jane Austen and the fictional birthplace of Charles Dickens' Nicholas Nickleby.

Visitors flock to the town's park to see exotic plants such as palms and gigantic cacti. The town's main beach stretches north to the long, gently sloping beach of Dawlish Warren. Dawlish Museum has an eclectic mix of exhibits and is even home to the D-Day bagpipes.
