From yummy fresh seafood and Victorian seaside fun, to breath-taking coastal paths, ferry trips and steam railways all showcased for you in an area of outstanding natural beauty, and perfectly placed on the doorstep of Dartmoor, Exeter and Plymouth; Teignmouth provides everything you need for a Great British seaside holiday! This picturesque town has been a holiday favourite since Georgian times. Its appeal today still lies in traditional seaside fun – paddling on the town’s beach, playing the arcades on the Grand Pier and taking England’s oldest passenger ferry across the estuary to neighbouring Shaldon. But in recent years it has also gained a reputation as a foodie hotspot. This year will see the third Teignmouth food festival and the summer launch of a new self-guided Taste of the Teign food trail further cements its status as a destination for gourmets. The trail will take in Old Walls vineyard, Red Rock Brewery, Milltop Orchards, and local places to eat such as the Crab Shack, which brings in fresh seafood every day on its own boats.
But it’s a different sort of boat that will put Teignmouth in the spotlight in 2017. The Mercy, starring Colin Firth and Rachel Weisz and due for release early this year, tells the story of Donald Crowhurst, a yachtsman who sent false reports of his location to dupe people into believing he was circumnavigating the globe. Crowhurst’s over-ambitious attempt ended in tragedy but the film, shot in Teignmouth – where Crowhurst’s journey began – should be a boon for the town, drawing attention to a stretch of coast often by-passsed by holidaymakers making a beeline for Torquay and beyond.
