Well worth a visit

So much more than you would think. The section on Donald Crowhurst is particularly interesting. Make sure you visit!

We are stewards at this brilliant small museum - a comprehensive history of Teignmouth & Shaldon. A modern layout, lots of 'hands on' - especially for children. A 'must see' when in Teignmouth.

I hadnt been to Teignmouth since i was a child but will be going back. Lovely long stretch of beach with a Lido. Lovely walk along the sea front with lots of modern art displays to look at. Very clean. Toilets and carpark close by and reasonably priced £4.50 for the day. Very busy so come early. Lots of places... More
