Like Nowhere Else
There is nowhere quite like Honiton.
Many towns might say that they are unique, but when it comes to Honiton, it is actually true! The town has a truly independent nature, from the local shops to the thrice-weekly market on the high street, you’ll have experiences here that you won’t find anywhere else.
A visit to the high street will give you a chance to enjoy the shops of yesteryear, with butchers, bakers and independent cafés to the traditional town markets that take place every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.
It isn’t just the shops either, Honiton’s events are unique too!
Stepping back in time has never been easier, so make sure to visit during Honiton Hot Pennies Day, which dates to the 13th century. The Honiton Show, a highlight in the agricultural calendar, attracts over 20,000 visitors a year. The Gate to Plate event is another popular event that really celebrates the local produce from the area, while the Market Charter Day brings the whole community together.
Each summer, the town comes alive with hanging baskets, while winter brings the Christmas lights and draws visitors from nearby towns. All year long visitors can enjoy an active and vibrant sport community from Rugby, gymnastics, swimming, football, and fitness options for all.
