Historic Sidmouth - Blue Plaque walk of the town.

Sidmouth prides itself on it's rich and interesting historical past and there is certainly no shortage of history around the town. There are buildings, places, people and locations of varying historical importance and interest all over Sidmouth.

Royal Glen Formerly Woolbrook Cottage The Belmont Hotel

Some of these have been commemorated with Blue Plaques presented by the Sid Vale Association. Here at the Town Website we have walked the town to discover as many as we could, 32 in all with Kennaway House's plaque awaiting to be produced and two others yet undiscovered. This is the beauty of Sidmouth, there are so many places you don't realise are hiding away.

This walk has been put together by us and is not officially a recognised walk but feel that these plaques can sometimes go unnoticed as you're walking around the town. It takes in all that Sidmouth has to offer and takes you through some places you may not have realised were there.

The Clock Tower Tudor Cottage

So if you are looking for an activity for a few hours then START HERE.

Feel free to give us some feedback on the walk and if there is anything we can do to improve it or add anything to it.
