Totnes, Devon

This town of two bridges on the River Dart in Devon makes for a good day trip when you're on your holidays in the UK. The vibe is very relaxed arty-wholesome so you'll find mostly independent shops, markets and galleries to mooch around. Totnes isn't without its history; stroll around the town and you'll notice several attractive and ancient buildings, and if you want to know more you can head to the Elizabethan Museum and the Fashion & Textiles Museum. Tell you what else is nice - to take a boat trip or a ride on a steam train through the beautiful countryside and when you get back to town head to the Steam Packet Inn, Waterside Bistro or Rumour Wine Bar for good chow.
