    1. Footloose

    2. Armada Guessed
      Barnstaple supplied 5 of the ships that sailed (from Barnstaple quay) to go fight the Spanish Armada in 1588.

    4. Liar Liar
      If you look closely at all four faces of the Albert Clock in Barnstaple Square, you’ll notice no two faces tell the same time. That’s why it’s known locally as ‘the four faced liar’.

    About Barnstaple

    About Barnstaple

    Historic, lively, picturesque and sunny, Barnstaple is one of the gems of the South West. The town is packed with interesting and quirky old buildings tracing back to the many trades over the years. In its time Barnstaple has; produced wool and clothe, been a major port, market town, shipbuilder, foundry and more.

    Today the pretty streets and weekly markets remain, along with the quayside and Butchers Row, a foodie haven packed with butchers, cheese shop, fishmongers, delis, cafes and more. One of the largest employers in the area is the Royal Marines who are based just outside the town.

    While Barnstaple’s claims to be the oldest borough in Britain may not be verified (a title that is hotly contested by other locales), it is certainly one of the most charming.


    History buffs will have plenty to explore. There’s a number of buildings and historic sites. This is of course an historic port, and the local museum is a great place to start before hitting the streets and doing your own detecting.

    If you love the great outdoors there is plenty to see, you can stroll along the quayside or hit the Tarka Trail which is 180 miles of traffic free paths.

    The town has a busy events calendar celebrating the history and arts and crafts of the region as well as beer, food and music festivals. There’s also a theatre, cinema, leisure centre with a swimming pool, plus a number of societies and groups covering a wide array of interests and hobbies.


    From the north the picturesque coastal route heads through the town, south to Truro on the Cornish Peninsular. The main A361 connects the town with the M5 motorway to Bristol and the Midlands. The nearest airport can be found at Exeter (37 miles). Trains routes are not the fastest reaching Bristol in 3 hours, London in 3 hours and 49 minutes, and Cardiff in around 4 hours.
