Tavistock is a town in Devon. It was the birthplace of Sir Francis Drake.

Get in

Tavistock is on the A386 from Plymouth to Okehampton, the B3357 from Princetown and the A390 into Cornwall It used to have two stations on different lines but is now dependent on buses for public transport. [1]

Get around

Walking will suffice for Tavistock itself. it's a great centre for a holiday, paticularly if you have a car.


Specific sights are not part of the town's appeal. it's just a thoroughly pleasant market town with good shops in a fine position.







Get out

The road to Princetown provides great Moorland scenery all the way and passes the Dartmoor Inn at Merrivale. Morwellham to the west is a most interesting historical theme park. A number of villages listed under Dartmoor are within easy access.
