Tavistock is the Gateway to Cornwall and West Devon Mining World Heritage Site. Straddling the fast flowing river Tavy, below the western edge of Dartmoor, Tavistock stands in the heart of an area of tremendous natural beauty. It is a classic West Country Market Town, with the old streets radiating from Bedford Square. You can find an eclectic mix of small independent shops, including delicatessens famous throughout the South West. Venture behind the Town Hall to discover the award winning and historic 900+ year old Pannier Market which will have just re-opened after a massive ‘make-over’. The Market bustles with activity on most days of the week and will be ‘buzzing’ during the Festival.
