We think Sidmouth is beautiful all year round, but there is something very special about the place at Christmas. There are plenty of reasons why we think you should visit over the Christmas break, but here are five to inspire you to make the trip.

The high street

There is just something about the high street being all decorated that really puts us in the Christmas spirit.

The festive events

Sidmouth has a pretty full on events calendar but at this time of year, you can find a host of festive things to do. Click here to find what’s on.

When it snows it looks like this.

Enough said.

We do cream tea better than anyone else

With the Jurassic Coast in the background, traditional Devon cream teas just taste better, and what could be more warming than a nice cup of tea and several fresh scones?

The food and drink

Cream tea aside, East Devon is known for its fresh, seasonal food and drink and well… Christmas is full of incredible flavours and treats. Whether you’re stopping off for a home made mince pie at one of our cafés or you’ve booked a full Christmas dinner for your friends or family, you can be sure of an incredible meal here in Sidmouth.
