Totnes history and culture
Head to Totnes Museum for a good overview of the history of the surrounding area. Exhibiting historic artworks and artefacts, the museum offers you the chance to try past crafts and activities, such as medieval cookery, for yourself. Totnes is also home to a museum devoted to period costume and fashion; dresses and outfits from the 18th to the 20th century are on display alongside fashion accessories and unusual textiles.
Whereas Compton Castle may look like a fortress, it was the luxury home of the Gilbert family for over 600 years, including Humphrey Gilbert, half-brother to famous explorer Sir Walter Raleigh. The house is now a museum, with rooms set up to look as they would have in the past, complete with historic artefacts and household items.
Fun for the kids in Totnes and nearby

Totnes Rare Breeds Farm, home to some more unusual animals such as red squirrels and pygmy hedgehogs, welcomes visitors to handle many of the friendlier residents. Meanwhile, nearby Pennywell Farm is home to some special animals, Pennywell Miniature Pigs. Visitors can feed and pet the pigs and watch them race over hurdles, or meet some of the other Pennywell residents, including lambs, goats, miniature ponies, and even an alpaca. Alternatively, Woodlands Family Theme Park has rides and attractions for kids of all ages, from thrill rides for teenagers to play areas and a petting zoo for the little ones.
Castles and churches
Totnes Castle is a typical Norman fortress. Built soon after the Battle of Hastings, it still looks much as it did centuries ago. Climb to the top of the keep to enjoy the views over the town below, or simply enjoy walking around the castle's imposing defensive walls. Visit ruined Berry Pomeroy Castle, which dates from the 16th century, to see a very different style of building. Also, this castle is rumoured to be haunted, so keep your eyes peeled for supernatural occurrences! Buckfast Abbey, dating from the 12th century, is still home to an order of monks. However, it welcomes visitors – explore the beautiful church and peaceful gardens, or buy goods made by monks and nuns from around Europe in the unique abbey shop.
