Modbury Tourist Information Centre launched their new website in 2019 www.modburytic.org.uk. Since then, visits to website have increased month on month, despite COVID-19 regulations restricting travel across the UK.
2021 continues this increasing trend. Throughout 2019, the website helped to increase footfall to the town and promote the town’s businesses to a wider audience. One of the key objectives in launching a new website was to provide a platform for businesses to access and promote Modbury and the surrounding villages as an ideal base for touring south Devon. We are now entering the second phase of development, which will start next month when the Tourist Information Office operates exclusively as a virtual office. We are very excited to be entering this new phase, which will provide a key platform for tourism in South Devon, and Modbury and District businesses to showcase everything that is attractive and exciting about the town and its hinterland. This development is not COVID related and has been carefully planned over the past three years.
From now on, the TIC will be offering web-based listing and adverts, reflecting the variety of businesses and facilities in the area from attractions, accommodation, restaurants, pubs and shops. Not forgetting, the superb beaches, countryside and the South Devon Coastal Path, which makes it a popular base for walking.
Notes: The Modbury Information Centre is run by volunteers and is self-supporting with periodic financial contributions from Modbury Parish Council and other sponsors.Contact Us
Modbury is a place like no other. Situated in the rolling hills of the South Hams and surrounded by designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it is unique in combining the independent shops and services of a small town with the heart and spirit of a village.
It is often said that Modbury’s greatest asset is its people. Modbury has been welcoming visitors since its days as a thriving market town, centred on the wool trade. Much of the wealth that period created can be seen in our legacy of many fine period buildings.
Today’s visitors will find a great welcome too. Modbury is the perfect gateway to the best of what the South Hams has to offer. Our cottages, B&Bs and Hotels make a good base for visiting nearby unspoiled beaches, enjoying well-signed country and coastal path walks, shopping or stopping by for a coffee, a snack or a meal in our cafe’s and pubs. Dartmoor is within easy reach. The nearby ocean city of Plymouth is where Sir Francis Drake set off to fight the Spanish armada and where the Pilgrim Fathers set sail for America. Modbury’s own history is also fascinating with tales of Roundhead and Cavalier battles. From the town, you can still walk Runaway Lane named after the outcome of one such battle.
Twinning with Lanveoc
The concept of twinning developed in Europe after World War II to promote friendship, co-operation and mutual awareness between the peoples of Europe.
Modbury is twinned with Lanveoc, a town in north west Brittany, with a similar population and roughly the same size as Modbury. The Twinning Association members travel annually to Lanveoc and organise a reciprocal visit to Modbury for their twinning partners usually to coincide with the Modbury Fair week in May.
Whatever your reason for visiting our delightful town you will find a warm and friendly welcome awaits you. You will not feel like a stranger here but a guest. We look forward to greeting you.
