Sitting at the head of an estuary, half way between Plymouth and Torbay, is the charming market town of Kingsbridge.

Kingsbridge, and the lands around it, passed into the possession of Buckfast Abbey some time after the Norman Conquest and in 1219 the Abbot was granted the right to hold marketing in Kingsbridge, his monks selling their produce of honey, fruit vegetables and think cream.

Kingsbridge is still a vibrant working town with a varied selection of shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs which are open all year.

Delve into the history of Kingsbridge at the Cookworthy Museum, which is housed in an ex-grammar school building and was named after a local man, William Cookworthy who discovered china clay in Cornwall and developed the first fine porcelain. The museum is open from late March to late October.

Visitors are encouraged to explore the area by foot, bicycle or on public transport to support the town’s green tourism policy. There’s certainly no better way of getting close to all that natural beauty than by exploring the countryside on foot.
