Sheridans Guides to Great Britan & Ireland

Ilfracombe, Devon

The pretty victorian fishing port of Ilfracombe is set around its stunning natural harbour and the 14th century chapel of St. Nicholas. Nestled on the edge of Exmoor Ilfracombe has something for everyone. A consistent Britain in Bloom winner, the entertainment here ranges from endless events and festivals, to street performers, a cinema, family activity centre and the new Landmark theatre offering somthing special the year round. Add to this, the pavement cafes, speciality shops, busy pubs and fine restaurants, the public gardens, museum and a range of boat trips from the harbour and you'll begin to get an idea why Ilfracombe has remained a favourite resort since before Queen Victoria's reign.
