Sidmouth is a city in Devon. Other than the international Folk Festival mentioned below, Sidmouth is a very pleasant but small and unremarkable seaside resort / dormitory town.

Get in[edit]

Sidmouth is well-connected by Stagecoach bus services to/from Exeter (service number 52A or 52B) and Exmouth (service 157).

Get around[edit]

Do[edit][add listing]

  • The most significant fact about Sidmouth is the week-long international Folk (Music) Festival that takes place every summer. The event is remarkable, but free activities are becoming increasingly scarce, limiting its appeal for those unwilling to pay to enter concerts or buy expensive crafts-goods from stalls and markets. Nevertheless, during the festival, the bustling seafront promenade, thick with musicians performing for change or simply for pleasure, is an enjoyable experience for all.
  • Sidmouth's beach is one of stones rather than sand. Swimming is popular during summer heatwaves.

Buy[edit][add listing]

Eat[edit][add listing]

Haymens Butchers offers a good range of (mostly) meat-based take-away options. Good old-fashioned shop, great value (they do some great cakes for 50p!) and deserved 'Taste of the West' award winners. Highly recommended.

Drink[edit][add listing]

Pubs[edit]

  • Dukes
  • The Marine

  • Carina's
