Tiverton - Historic Town
Tiverton was once the industrial centre of  Devon, mainly fabrics. The fine old merchants buildings in the town remain along with Tiverton Castle, worth a visit, and the canal which has boat trips, horse drawn. Buildings of note include St Peter's Church and the council offices. The town has a small, but busy, shopping centre, with some out of town shops. Local cinema.

Bickleigh Mill
Devonshires Country Living Centre
Bickleigh Mill is at the centre of one of the prettiest villages in the Exe valley. When you're passing, make a point of calling in to choose some refreshment from our menu of freshly prepared and locally produced food. Afterwards take a leisurely stroll around the mill workings and browse in our gallery and craft displays or indulge yourself by selecting something from our excellent clothes shop.

Knightshayes Court
 Designed by William Burges and begun in 1869, Knightshayes is a rare survival of his work. The rich interiors combine medieval romanticism with lavish Victorian decoration, and the smoking and billiard rooms, elegant boudoir and drawing room all give an atmospheric insight into grand country house life. The celebrated garden features a water lily pool and topiary, fine specimen trees, rare shrubs and delightful seasonal colours. Attractive woodland walks lead through the grounds

Tiverton Canal Company
Experience the enchantment of travel aboard a horse-drawn barge, where the stillness of progress is only interrupted by ripples from the bow. The mellow clip-clop of the barge horse mingles with the harvest's aroma so awakening memories of those lazy days of summer from a bygone era.

As the barge silently journeys onward, rippling water filters amongst the waterlilies where Mallards, Coots and Moorhens jostle for supremacy beneath hovering dragonflies.
Open March - September. Signposted from Tiverton town centre. Tel 01884 253345
