Local Attractions near Slapton
Top Attractions: South Hams With a strong rural and maritime heritage the South Hams is noted for its beautiful landscape, quality local food, culture and scenic beaches. The South Hams is a region of rural and coastal Devon much of which is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, stretching as far as the edges of Dartmoor National Park and featuring one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in the UK which spans between Torbay and Plymouth. History The South Hams has a long history stretching back to Anglo Saxon times. Since medieval times many of the villages were centred around the production of wool, and the local ports thrived on the export of local products. The strategic position of many coastal towns has meant that the Royal Navy has been a dominant presence throughout the centuries and still plays a major role in the economy and character of the region today. Things to do If you love the outdoors, you’ll love the South Hams. It’s a wonderful outdoor environment, with rivers, moor land, coasts and the sea offering visitors a range of activities including canoeing, walking and sailing. Heritage fans will love local attractions such as Totnes Castle and the South Devon Railway. Throughout the year towns and villages across the South Hams play host to a range of arts and food festivals, keeping culture-vultures happy whatever the seasons. For the nautically inclined the coast has a big tradition of sailing regattas and arts events. Food and drink The West Country is one of the most important producers of food and drink in the UK, noted for its quality and traditional methods. Here you’ll be treated to some of the best fine dining using locally made produce. For seafood, towns such as Dartmouth and Salcombe boast award-winning restaurants, while inland gastro pubs serve excellent home cooked fare. The South Hams has many wonderful towns and villages waiting to be explored, below you’ll find a list to help you decide where to start.
