Overlooked by an 11th century castle, Totnes was once an important port but now stands at the highest navigable point of the River Dart. Packed with historical interest, it boasts an unusual, arcaded high street and a museum housed in an Elizabethan merchant’s house.
Its church dates to the 15th century and its civic centre to 11th century. A key attraction is the Tones Motor Museum. Nearby is the family home and gardens of Agatha Christie, now ran by the National Trust. She bought the estate in 1938 and some 30 acres are open to the public.
