Exmouth Town in Devon
The town of Exmouth dates from the 11th century and lies at the mouth of the River Exe. It has important maritime connections acting as a regional centre for watersports activities such as sailing, jet-skiing, and wind-surfing. Along with the whole Exe estuary, it is a mecca for bird-watchers, walkers and cyclists.
The Exe Estuary is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and is noted in particular for its wading and migrating birds. Exmouth also marks the western end of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, which runs east to Poole, in Dorset. Exmouth has a population of about 36,000, many residents work in Exeter and commute in daily using the excellent rail links.
Highlights of the area include the historic Powderham Castle, relaxing Bicton Park, the National Trust property of A La Ronde, as well as a number of cruises by boat along the Jurassic Coast or up the River Exe. Dawlish Warren, Teignmouth and the numerous pleasure beaches of Torbay are within easy reach.
