Teignmouth is a Devon seaside town situated on the north bank of the River Teign at the estuary mouth. Teignmouth is a traditional seaside resort with original Georgian and Victorian architecture, a long sandy beach, promenade, lido and victorian pier but you then also get the contrast of the harbour side of the town.
As well as the long sea facing beach it also wraps around the spit at the head of the river Teign providing a river beach, commonly known as the Back Beach. Behind the spit you have the natural harbour with its moorings for many pleasure craft.
The town has a selection of places to eat with many offering fresh, locally-caught fish.
Teignmouth sits at the end of the Templer Way, a 29km (18 mile) walking trail which traces the historic line of granite being taken from the quarries at Haytor on Dartmoor to the docks at Teignmouth. The scenic waymarked walk where possible follows the Haytor Granite Tramway and the Stover Canal.
