Tiverton is an historic town in Devon that was largely built up on the woollen cloth trade over 300 years. Go for a wander round and you’ll find a mix of shops – mostly independent, family run businesses with some high street names. There’s a regular Pannier Market and Farmer’s Market where you can buy all sorts of local delights, an interesting museum and a castle built in 1106. Follow the Tiverton Merchant’s Trail and see the former homes of the merchants who made their fortune in the trade, stroll along the banks of the Grand Western Canal, hire rowing boats or take a leisurely trip on a horse drawn barge. If you’re looking for sustenance, Frou Frou is very good for bistro style food, Pho Nam for authentic Vietnamese, and the Canal Tea Rooms & Garden for cream tea and cakes. Nearby are Bickleigh Mill, Bickleigh Castle and Knightshayes (NT).
