Visitor guide to Bideford

The historic port and market town of Bideford lies on the western banks of the River Torridge, a few miles from the North Devon coast. An arched, stone bridge dating back to 1535 crosses the river, connecting Bideford with its neighbour, East-the-Water. Author Charles Kingsley lived in Bideford and based his novel Westward Ho! in the area, describing it as a town of white houses – although today, many are pastel-coloured. In the town centre, narrow streets lined with independent shops lead to a graceful riverfront, where cafes, pubs and gardens provide views along the river to the estuary and the ocean beyond.
