Looking from Ilfracombe towards the old ironage hillfort on Rillage Point- if you look carefully, you can see that the cliffs resemble a kneeling elephant.

Ilfracombe, sits snugly amongst the rugged cliffs of the majestic Atlantic coast, Ilfracombe is North Devon's leading resort and a gateway to the Heritage Coast.

Ilfracombe's charming natural harbour and elegant Victorian architecture make the town as popular today as it has been since the 1830's. Ilfracombe offers fun and entertainment for all!

Visit the unique Tunnels Beaches with bathing areas and boating pool, or simply wander around the town with its waterfront cafes, restaurants and shops.

Ilfracombe is a consistent winner of Britain in Bloom with the colourful displays brightening up the streets and seafront. The historic natural harbour, set amidst spectacular cliffs and coves, has pleasure craft and fishing boats for visitors.

Pleasure trips are always on offer during the summer season and Ilfracombe is one of the ports used by the M.S Oldenburg on its regular passenger services to Lundy Island.

The Landmark Theatre overlooking the seafront is North Devon's newest arts and entertainment complex, with a year-round programme of events. The award-winning Ilfracombe Museum, has a fascinating selection of object and curios.

Every year, during the month of June, the town commemorates its heritage by holding a Victorian celebration. Locals dress themselves in period costume and turn back the clocks to hold a series of events that include pageants, street fairs and a grand costume ball.

For the nature lover and rambler, Ilfracombe is an ideal location. The spectacular Torrs walks, which follow the coastal footpath to Lee have been described as some of the finest walks in England.

The unique Tunnels Beaches provide safe bathing areas with secluded beaches and pools, accessed through tunnels quarried beneath the cliffs. To the East the pretty cove of Hele Bay is a veritable paradise of rock pools and sandy inlets for that perfect day out.
