Overlooked by the distant hills of Dartmoor, this popular coastal town has all the traditional features of a seaside resort while retaining its importance as a working port. Tourists can visit the Victorian pier, perambulate on the long promenade, play on the beach or just watch the boats come in.

The oldest part of the town has an elegant crescent of Georgian homes together with a sea-facing area of lawns, flowerbeds and children's play areas. The town’s golf course is 800ft above sea level. A huge bridge spans the estuary of the River Teign. Fanny Burney and John Keats both famously holidayed at Teignmouth.
