An enchanting and very popular ancient Stannary town, Tavistock has a huge amount to offer visitors and travellers. A beautiful park, through which the River Tavy runs, a huge selection of lovely old shops, five minutes from the open moor and a bustling farmer’s market!
Each autumn, the town comes alive with festivities and a fair when the famous Goosey Fair occurs, and a little later on in the year a Dickensian evening takes place in December.
