Exmouth is a beautiful little port town and resort in East Devon. With its impressive architecture both modern and new, the town attracts a fairly wealthy clientele in terms of its tourism and holiday home ownership. Many houses in the town are second homes.
The small port has a history dating back hundreds of years. Sir Walter Raleigh would have sailed from Exmouth Harbour many times as he set off on his voyages. One of the oldest holiday resorts in Devon, Exmouth has seen high class tourism and mass tourism in later years.
The seafront is very traditional with ice cream vendors, some good restaurants and cafe tea rooms. The sandy beach is popular in the summer and the town with its pleasant centre square has a wealth of branded and independent shops.
