Ilfracombe Travel Guide

In the summer months the M.S. Oldenburg sails from the harbour to the remote National Trust managed Lundy Island. The unique Tunnels Beaches accessed through tunnels hewn beneath the cliffs lead to the town’s fine beaches and rock pools; nearby Hele Bay is another popular beach spot. For a more adventurous foray the Spectacular Torrs Walks following the coastal footpath are amongst the best walks in the country. The town centre of Ilfracombe still retains an old world charm whilst combining all the conveniences of modern life. There are a good range of shops from the usual ‘high street’ big names to small individual craft, gift and antique shops. The town’s award winning Museum houses an interesting array of local documents, photos and artefacts outlining the areas rich maritime and rural history. The Landmark Theatre, looking not unlike a small group of unfinished cooling towers, is the town’s major arts and entertainment complex, staging an impressive year round programme of events. Local seafood features on many of the town’s restaurant menus as well as culinary offerings from many other popular cuisines. There are pubs a plenty throughout the town especially around the harbour.
