Great Torrington is a classic market town set above the striking River Torridge in rural North Devon.
It is a welcoming community with a distinctive past, a thriving present and much to see. The Town Centre has dozens of independent shops, a Victorian Pannier Market, pubs, restaurants and coffee houses. There is a fully restored Town Hall, a Library, Heritage Museum and the unique, friendly Plough Arts Centre. Nearby are Dartington Crystal and RHS Rosemoor, the Tarka Trail and Commons which are each worth a visit.
All this makes Great Torrington one of the key attractions in North Devon: a place to explore past and present, to soak up the unhurried charm of a character town in unspoilt countryside.
