Discover all that Barnstaple has to offer

We are overjoyed that we’re going to be showcasing everything there is to shop, eat and do in Barnstaple.

A staple in the North Devon area, this riverport town has a reputation for being a great area to explore local life within Northern Devon. It’s not coastal, and actually, this adds to its charm!

At the Discover App, our focus is on promoting our areas to both locals and visitors alike and Barnstaple has its fair share of hidden gems for the locals and huge amounts of discoveries to be made for tourists.

One of the best places to start is the Barnstaple Pannier Market! At this market you can expect to find an array of Northern Devon’s finest traders and independent businesses, as well as an extensive market events calendar.

If the weather isn’t good enough for hiking the Tarka Trail or the South West Coast path to absorb the breathtaking views Northern Devon has to offer, Barnstaple also features plenty to do inside including the new Tarka leisure centre, a state of the art swimming pool, spacious gym and group classes to keep you in shape.

Barnstaple is a hub of activity catering to adults and families, with plenty of brands and independents. And if heritage is your thing, there’s plenty to discover in the town. From the ornate Queen Anne’s Walk to the 13th century Long Bridge.

You’re so close to the Museum of North Devon too so you can fully immerse yourself in the local culture.

So check out the offerings on the Discover App and make the most of what Barnstaple has to offer.
