Discover the extraordinary side of Sidmouth

In Sidmouth, offbeat experiences abound for those seeking unconventional delights. Begin by exploring the hidden gems, like Jacob's Ladder Beach, accessible via a zigzagging stairway that leads to a secluded cove perfect for serene sunsets or picnics. Embrace the whimsical at the Sidmouth Museum, delving into local history with peculiar artefacts and tales, or opt for a unique visit to the Norman Lockyer Observatory, where celestial wonders unfold through telescopic views and astronomy talks. For a dose of vintage charm, hop aboard the Sidmouth Tramway, an old-fashioned tram that trundles through picturesque routes, offering a nostalgic glimpse of the town's past.

Indulge your taste buds at quirky eateries such as a tearoom in a double-decker bus or a seafood shack perched along the coastline, providing a taste of the sea with a side of eccentric ambience. Unearth treasures at Sidmouth's flea market, where eclectic finds await, from antique trinkets to peculiar curiosities. Lastly, embrace the unconventional by joining the town's quirky festivals—a celebration of everything from folk music to nettle eating, infusing the air with an eccentric and infectious energy that's uniquely Sidmouth.

If you're after something a little quirkier then why not head off to Bearhouse Alpacas? Here you can learn about the inquisitive alpacas and their fantastic fleeces (they are a long way from their native South America!). Visit in the summer to see the impossibly cute cria (baby alpacas). The real draw is the chance to go Alpaca trekking around the steep tracks surrounding the farm. Visitors are invited to take the alpacas on a walk with a lead through gorgeous green countryside – just like a rather unusual dog walk!
