    8 Quirky Facts About Tavistock

    1. All Mine
      Tavistock is Devon’s the only town in Devon to hold World Heritage status in recognition of its links with Devon and Cornwall’s mining history.
    2. World Leading
      At one time, Tavistock was seen as a world leader in new mining technology which it exported as far afield as Australia and South America.
    3. Geese Is The Word
      Tavistock has an annual Goose Fair that dates back to the 12th century. Its roots lie in the Middle Ages when farmers would drive their geese to the Christmas market. Today the fair attracts 20,000 visitors.
    4. Abbey Birthday
      Built on the site of a Saxon settlement, Tavistock’s growth was partly due to the abbey built circa 960AD. The Abbey was partly destroyed by Viking raiders and rebuilt around the turn of the first millennium.
    5. Best of the Best
      Tavistock has been voted both England’s Best Market Town and Best Food Town on separate occasions.
    6. Stocky
      The town’s name is believed to derive from the river (originally called ‘Tau Vechan’) and ‘stoc’ meaning stockade.
    7. Tor Blimey!
      Overlooking Tavistock, up on Brent Tor, is the tiny chapel of St Michael which offers unspoilt views over town and surrounding moorland.
    8. Sir Francis
      Tavistock’s most famous son is Sir Francis Drake who was born at Crowndale Farm.

    About Tavistock

    About Tavistock

    Sitting within a World Heritage site, putting it on a par with The Great Wall of China and Stonehenge (take that Torquay!), Tavistock owes its rich heritage to copper mining. The surrounding landscape has many examples of mining that made much of Devon and Cornwall prosperous during the 18th and 19th centuries.

    Today, this charming town is a hit with tourists and at the centre of life in the area with events and festivities throughout the year. There are also tea shops, independent traders and local crafts.


    The highlight of the Tavistock calendar is the annual Goose Fair held every October, with stalls, food, drink, rides games and entertainment, it attracts thousands of visitors to the town.

    The Wharf is a live entertainment venue that includes cinema evenings, a café and bar. If you love the great outdoors there is a trout fishery, parks, walking trails and riding centres. If you prefer your entertainment a little more flavoursome, we can recommend the Stannery Brewing Company and Tap Room. Foodies can also enjoy the weekly market showcasing the best local producers.

    There is also a cricket club, rugby club, athletics club and tennis club. Phew!


    Situated on the A386 a few miles north of Plymouth, Tavistock is an hour from the nearest motorway (M5). It is a short drive to the coast and the nearest major airport is Exeter International. At one time Tavistock boasted two train stations, today the nearest station is 3.86 miles away in Gunnislake, 3.86 miles.
