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!
