Barnstaple, North Devon

Barnstaple is the oldest borough in the country and is the commercial and agricultural centre of North Devon. A must visit for anyone seeking serious retail therapy. Saxons first settled in Barnstaple (Barum) over 1000 years ago; in 930AD it was a Saxon stronghold serving as a market for the surrounding countryside.

Today it has a wonderful mixture of Victorian, Medieval and Georgian architecture and is proud to be a multiple winner of Britain in Bloom. Visit the Barnstaple Heritage Centre, sited in a fine Grade 1 listed building to learn more about the town's 1000 year history. For more information on Barnstaple visit the local Tourist Information Centre.

As the premier town in North Devon you'll find great bars, great restaurants and big name high street shopping. But that's not what makes Barnstaple special. Not alone. That's done by the independent boutique shops within the town, the proud local food producers selling their delicious delicacies in the Pannier Market and, of course, the town's colourful history. It's this mix of new and old, of modern and traditional that's behind Barnstaple's charm. We'd love you to share it with us.

Enjoy time for shopping and lunch in Barnstaple.
