Bideford- a jewel on the North Devon Coast

The town of Bideford is a very popular tourist attraction in North Devon. Bideford is a thriving shopping centre with a historic Pannier Market (on a Tuesday) holding both produce and craft markets. Many antique shops are scattered amongst the narrow backstreets and alleyways that lead up from the quay and the river. These alleys are known as Drangs. The multi-coloured shops sell local produce and arts and crafts. Its tree lined quay still bustles with fishing vessels, cargo and pleasure boats, and there are regular boat trips to Lundy Island in the Bristol Channel about 12 miles away.
