From the sandy beach and foodie finds to the best evening entertainment - we pick where to eat, shop and explore in the pretty Devon town of Teignmouth



Discover a new underwater world and learn to dive with a range of courses for all abilities. Dive boats visit the magnificent wrecks and reefs of Lyme Bay and Torbay, plus offer shore diving in Torquay.



The Teignmouth to Shaldon Ferry is a central part of life on the River Teign and the crossing can be traced back to 1296. Incorporate the ferry into your coastal walk and explore more of the coastline.



Tackle the family-fun 12-hole golf course that takes you on a tour of local landmarked-themed holes with the challenging East Cliff Slope, Smugglers Tunnel and the Teign Leap.

Night time


Spend an evening in a decidedly old-school environment at this American BBQ smoke-house and sip cocktails inspired by old saloons alongside the classics, plus craft beer and small boutique wine list.



Star of BBC1’s Live at the Apollo, Simon Evans will be at Pavilions Teignmouth on 28 May for a night of outrageous laughs and comical genius.



The Teignmouth Players are a group of enthusiastic amateurs who run the Ice Factory. Alongside their youth section, The T.Y.K.E.S, they stage exciting productions and events.

Pick up made-to-order crab sandwiches with a sprinkle of black pepper and a squeeze of lemon and enjoy them fresh out the bag as you sink your toes into Teignmouth’s sandy stretch of beach.


Every last Saturday of the month, 10am-2pm, The Triangle is alive with freshly grown, baked, raised, caught, brewed or smoked produce. Cram your basket with goodies and feed your soul as you fill your plate.



Situated in the old Riviera cinema, a Grade II listed building, the Riveria serves Mediterranean style food & tapas with a British twist, a-la-carte food, steak and bistro food, alongside quality wines, ales and craft beers.




Those fond of all things shabby chic, rustic and distressed will love browsing the beautiful mix of hand painted furnishings, up-cycled items, homeware, unique gifts and handmade jewellery.



Located right on the beach, the Beachcomber is the perfect pit stop for dining al fresco as you watch the world go by. The menu boasts a delicious variety, and it’s impossible to ignore the homemade cakes at the counter!



Local artist Laura is well-known for her much-loved Goose illustration, as well as her popular Love at the Seaside collection. Browse her gallery for fine art originals, limited edition prints, lampshades and jewellery.
