About Tavistock

About Tavistock

Tavistock is a scenic river town in West Devon on the banks of River Tavy (from which it has got its name) and 14.9mi north of Plymouth. The city’s history dates back to 961AD when Tavistock Abbey got established. You can still see the ancient ruins in the centre of the town.

If you’re a nature lover visit the Lydford Gorge inside the Dartmoor National Park 8.6mi from the town centre of Tavistock. It is the deepest gorge in the south-west part of the country, and you can also view the 98.5ft White Lady waterfall in the area. Throughout the year, there’s lush green cover where you’ll see many ferns and moss. The 3mi circular trail leading to the two most significant attractions, the waterfall and Devil’s Cauldron, are well-maintained, and older children can also trek it without too much difficulty. The area around the River Lyd is pristine and quiet.
