Teignmouth is a coastal town in South Devon. It is situated on the north bank of the estuary mouth of the River Teign in an area of the South Devon coast that is famed for its red sandstone cliffs. It has a population of approx 14,000.
In 1690, it was the last place in England to be invaded by a foreign power, when a contingent of the French fleet anchored of Torbay attacked the town. The town grew from a fishing port associated with the Newfoundland cod industry to a fashionable resort of some note in Georgian times, with further expansion after the opening of the South Devon Railway in 1846.
Today, its port still operates and the town remains a popular seaside holiday location.
Every summer it hosts a folk festival , Jazz festival  and Carnival .
Teignmouth has a train station located near the centre of town on the line from London Paddington to Penzance in Cornwall. It is served by Crosscountry and First Great Western trains. The journey from Exeter is famous for its beauty as it hugs the red sandstone cliffs with great views out to open sea. It is worth getting the train to Exeter just for the journey. Teignmouth is also just 15 miles from Exeter International Airport  which has scheduled flights to many destinations in the UK and Europe.
The south west coast path, which passes through the town, is a great way to see the coast in this part of Devon
