Tavistock sits on the edge of Dartmoor, about 15 miles north of Plymouth. This delightful market town on the banks of the fast-flowing River Tavy, has some landmark architecture erected in 1860 by the 7th Duke of Bedford. The streets radiate out from Bedford Square where the Town Hall, council offices and market building make a grand first impression.
The Meadows is a local park with attractive walks, fitness trails and children’s play area. Walks beside the river can be enjoyed on Abbey Walk from Abbey Bridge to the Meadows. The Wharf Arts Centre has a cinema and the Meadowlands Leisure Centre offers a swimming pool. The town has various sports pitches for tennis, cricket, bowling and football and there is a scenic golf club.
Buckland Abbey is nearby, where Sir Francis Drake lived after being knighted by Elizabeth I for his services of circumnavigating the world in 1577, great for a historic day out.
