"A town caught still in a timeless charm" Sidmouth as described by Poet Laurete, John Betjeman.
Sidmouth is an elegant seaside town which has maintained its Regency charm, the seafront promenade itself is lined with period properties, there's a long stretch of sand and pebble beach, beautiful gardens to enjoy and it offers stunning views of the surrounding famous red cliffs.
It is all here in this lovely seaside town that nestles beneath majestic red cliffs and the green hills of the glorious Sid Valley.
From Community markets every week, to band performances, theatre productions, classic car shows, literary and walking festivals Sidmouth regatta and the internationally renowned Folk Week, there's a lot going on in Sidmouth all year round, but mostly it is simply a lovely place to spend some time.
