A dazzling jewel in the crown of the English Riviera is the beautiful historical town of Teignmouth. Teignmouth has two contrasting sides to it; an historic port and a traditional British seaside town, and it is this contrast that makes the town special.
There's plenty to do here and you don't need to venture out of the town to keep yourself entertained. Teignmouth has all of the traditional attractions of a British seaside town with picturesque promenades, stunning crescents of Georgian buildings, a stunning Victorian pier, and a lido for family fun, as well as many shops and parks.
Teignmouth beach is a river beach on the estuary side of the River Teign. Lined with higgledy-piggledy beach huts, it provides the perfect environment for basking in the summer sun or having a splash about in the warm, gentle waters. Sitting next to the seafront is a lawned area known as The Den. As well as being a favourite gathering place for tourists, it also sometimes plays host to live music concerts, most notably when local band Muse played their homecoming concert here in 2009. The Den is not just a place to kick back and relax; there is also an award-winning water play park for the kids to let off some steam.
There is a whole host of places to eat and drink in Teignmouth, whether you want locally caught sustainable seafood, traditional fish and chips or to sample real ales, there is something for you. There is even a local vineyard where you can sample the fruits of the English Riviera straight from the source.
Whether looking for a historical, traditional seaside town or just a place to escape to the sun and indulge in local fare then Teignmouth has something for you, so search for holiday cottages in Teignmouth today and find out for yourself.
