Ilfracombe is a charming Victorian seaside Devon resort town nestled into the harbour and surrounding cliffs along the North Devon coastline.

The pretty streets are alive with a friendly atmosphere. There is a wealth of bustling independent shops selling everything from clothing to handmade chocolates and quirky American sweets. There are regular Farmer Markets in the town and plenty of choice to spend a day shopping. During the summer, the streets are in bloom with multi-coloured displays of hanging baskets and flowers that the retailers display and adorn their shop fronts with, the town is a gold award-winning ‘South West in Bloom’ winner.

Must see

Spend a day along the Quayside and watch the pace of waterside life. Fishermen bring their catch in daily, local rowing groups practise on the water, or lucky locals heading out for a leisurely weekend sail. Along the Quay and up the connecting streets are plenty of cafes and restaurants where you can often try the fresh catch from the harbour.

A welcome and recent attraction on the seafront is the 66 ft bronze statue ‘Verity’ by acclaimed local artist and Turner Prize winner Damien Hirst. The statue stands on the Pier and is a remarkable sight at dusk as the sun is setting. There are many artists who live in the area and there are a number of acclaimed art galleries and exhibitions. Also visit Tunnels Beach, a curio from the Edwardian era.
