If you haven’t been to Kingsbridge before, you must go when you’re down this way on your large group holidays in Devon. Right on the estuary, the town is surrounded by the beautiful rolling hills of South Devon AONB, having the perfect mix of coast and country.
Shops are for the larger part, independently owned and include eclectic antique centres and art galleries; there are several cafes, pubs and restaurants including The Crabshell Inn and Twenty_Seven.
Kingsbridge is a vibrant place with a regular Farmers Market and events held throughout the year. It’s a joy to potter about the narrow bunting-strung streets, looking up at the old buildings, soaking up the lively atmosphere; amble down to the harbour to see the boats lined up along the quay, take a stroll down Squeezebelly Lane, one of the narrowest thoroughfares in the UK. If you want to wander further, you’ll find several good walks starting from the town, taking you deep into lush countryside and out onto the clifftops.
Watersports fans can hire kayaks and SUPs and take to the calm waters of the estuary, if you’ve got the kids with you take them for a ride on the Kingsbridge & District Light Railway, if you want to find out about the town’s history, go and have a look round the museum. Kingsbridge is a good place to be and it’s so easy to happily while away a few hours or longer.
