Sidmouth is a Regency town which was hugely popular in the late 18th century but barely developed in Victorian times as Torquay became a more popular resort. This allowed the town to remain rather exclusive and upmarket and holiday apartments in Sidmouth remain a popular choice for families and retirees. The town is a frequent winner of Britain in Bloom with its beautiful parks. It prides itself on its cultural entertainment with an art centre, theatre, cinema and a Folk Week in August. Sidmouth Museum is next door to the Church and further up Salcombe Hill is the Lockyer Observatory and Planetarium which is an interesting science-based attraction.

The best beach in Sidmouth is Jacob's Ladder and just above the shingle beach are the Connaught Gardens including a beautiful Jungle and Rock Garden. Take time out to enjoy refreshments at the Clocktower tearooms amidst the colourful blooms. Other essentials for any holiday in South Devon are fish and chip shops, a swimming pool, cinema and walks beside the River Sid where expectant ducks hang out waiting to be fed.

Sidmouth is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty best explored on scenic drives, leisurely bicycle rides and clifftop hikes. Known as the gateway to the Jurassic Coast World heritage Site, there is plenty to see and do in the area. Visit the natural arch at Durdle Door, beautiful Lulworth Cove and keep an eye open for fossils which litter this coastline.
