Tiverton is a busy market town, and is the largest town in Mid Devon, situated just to the north of Exeter on the A396.
Tiverton stands on two rivers, the Lowman and the Exe, which were once used as the a source of power for its woollen industry. Much of Tiverton now centres on the Heathcoat lace factory, which has been in operation since 1816.
Attractions in Tiverton include Tiverton Castle, which was occupied by the Earls of Devon up to the 16th Century, and the restored canal with a horse drawn passenger service, which follows a glorious route through unspoilt countryside.
The town has a lively market with a farmers market the third Wednesday of every month as well as many shops, tearooms and restaurants. You can take a church trail, exploring many of the outstanding churches in the area, as well as a local town trail, which enables you to discover the hidden historic and architectural gems of the town.
Canal walks and horse-drawn boat cruises take place on the Grand Western Canal with an amazing 24 bridges along its 11-mile stretch of canal.
