Welcome to Exmouth Council
Exmouth is the largest town in Devon. It is situated at the mouth of the Exe Estuary, a SSSI for wildlife and an area of outstanding natural beauty. Exmouth is also the beginning of the Jurassic Coast which stretches from Exmouth eastwards to Weymouth. The area has something to offer everyone, with the first sandy beach on the South Devon Coast; it is a popular resort for traditional family holidays. It is also home to superb watersports, from kitesurfing, kayaking and waterskiing to sailing both dinghies and larger craft. Exmouth is a great base from which to explore the wider area, from Lyme Regis to Torbay by boat, and also up the River Exe to Topsham and Exeter. You can travel either by water on Stuart Line cruises, by bike or foot on the fantastic new Exe Trail from Exmouth to Topsham or take the train on the popular Avocet line which follows the Exe up into Exeter. Bike hire is available in town.
For those who seek sophistication Exmouth offers fine dining in award-winning and intriguing restaurants and a great range of more informal eateries around the Strand, the Beacon, the seafront and even moored out in the estuary and reached by water-taxi.
Away from the water there is superb walking on Woodbury Common and also plenty to do indoors. Indoor amenities include: ten-pin bowling, swimming, tennis and a shopping centre with a large number of independent retailers.
