Every month Lydia Tewkesbury heads to one of Devon's many beautiful locations to see how you can best spend a day out. This month she headed to Teignmouth


The beach

No visit would be complete without a trip to the beach. Stroll, sunbathe or swim – whichever takes your fancy. Make sure to visit the pier before you leave.

Eastcliff Park

A short walk away from the beach lies this gorgeous park. Walk the dog and enjoy the wildlife in this sub-tropical garden.

Teignmouth and Shaldon Museum

Immerse yourself in local history with a trip to this small but fun-packed museum.


Night Time

With stunning views up the Teign Estuary, outstanding food and a selection of fine ales, it’s a lovely place to spend your evening.
