Totnes

UK travel information

With a prime location on the River Dart in Devon, Totnes has become a popular town for tourists and those seeking a simple lifestyle, and is typified by the many old and quaint buildings and narrow streets that give the town its picturesque image.

Having been a market town from the 12th century, Totnes retains much of the charm that has evolved within the town over the years, and is a most pleasant place to visit. Notable places of interest include Totnes Castle, built for William I, and a number of medieval and later churches that are of historical importance and interest.

 

Totnes hotels



Totnes is a thriving town that is also distinctive in having its own local currency, the Totnes Pound, introduced recently to boost local economy. A popular tourist destination, this pretty Devon town can boast some comfortable old inns, excellent shops and plenty of accommodation for the visitor, and is easily reached by way of the A38 trunk road and arteries.

Paignton Zoo, Totnes Road, Paignton TQ4 7EU (01803) 697500
Paignton Zoo, two miles from Totnes, is home to thousands of animals and plants.
First opened to the public in 1923, the zoo has now become an education and scientific charity and major tourist attraction.
Housed in 80 acres and divided into six different habitat zones such as savannah, forest and wetland; Paignton Zoo is quite literally one wild world.

Totnes Guildhall, 5 Ramparts Walk, Totnes TQ9 5QH (01803) 862147
A former 11th Century priory building, Totnes Guildhall became a Guildhall and school after King Edward VI gave the town a charter in 1553.
After being converted into a Magistrates court in 1624 (having been a meeting place for Lord Fairfax and Oliver Cromwell when discussing their next plan of action), the Guildhall ceased court proceedings in 1974 and became the venue for town council meetings.
