Area Overview

Bideford is a bustling market town and port situated on the River Torridge in North Devon. Historic buildings, including a covered Pannier Market dating back to 1883, blend seamlessly with modern shops, bars and eating places to provide a great day out for people of all ages. It was dubbed ‘The Little White Town’ by novelist Charles Kingsley who lived in the area, and its quiet lanes and relaxed atmosphere continue to attract year-round tourism. The town enjoys a mild climate with average summer temperatures reaching 20°C, and winters bringing occasional frosts with temperatures mainly hovering around 5°C.

When to go to Bideford

The most popular months to visit Bideford are July and August, thanks to temperatures of around 20°C and low rainfall when compared with the rest of the year. Bideford Heritage Day also attracts visitors during the summer months. The low season starts in November and continues until the spring, when temperatures start to rise to around 16°C during May.
