Discovering Bideford

We are so excited to be working with Torridge District Council to provide our place promotion app to Bideford!

Set on the edge of the river Torridge, this historic town has endless offerings for locals and visitors to shop, eat and do!

We can’t wait to be able to showcase Bideford. From The Big Sheep theme park, to stained glass workshops, The Milky Way Adventure to Treasure and Heritage Trails, there’s plenty to do in the area.

Bideford is a hub for live music, pubs and restaurants in the Torridge area making it the perfect place for your next ‘staycation’!

The town has been recognised as giving off a real ‘home from home’ vibe and we intend on staying true to this during our representation of the area on the app. The friendly atmosphere, picturesque quay and buzzing pannier market really add to this positive, welcoming atmosphere, bringing holiday-makers back every year!

Did you know that Bideford was one of the UK’s third largest ports? Or that one of the longest mediaeval bridges in England, Bideford Long Bridge’ was first erected in 1280?

Not only is Bideford a great hub for culture, it’s the perfect place to make your base as you discover the Northern Devon coast and countryside. You won’t be short of choice of trails, beaches and sites of natural beauty here, and even if the weather isn’t quite right for going out, you can find plenty to do indoors for all ages such as visiting the Burton Gallery or browsing an exhibition at the Plough Arts Centre.
