The market town of Honiton is approximately 7 miles west of Upottery. It is dominated by a long straight road built by the Romans and has a history that goes back to medieval times with the Hot Pennies ceremony and Charter Day still being celebrated every July. The town is famous for its lace and pottery and good examples can be found at Allhallows Museum. There are many independently owned shops, restaurants and cafes and the town is especially noted for its antique shops. The former home of the late painter, Thelma Hulbert, is now a public art gallery with exhibitions of contemporary art and craft on show.
Just a small selection as there are so many attractions in the area and there really is something for every season and for every person, whatever your interests: Jurassic Coast, Hestercombe Gardens, Forde Abbey, National Trust properties, Seaton Tramway, Otterton Mill (good for live music too), Stuart Line boat trips, the historic city of Exeter.
