This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Walking Aid
Teignmouth is a traditional seaside town. The area near the water front is level, there is a town centre, sea front promenade and a pier.
Transport & Parking
Teignmouth train station has step free access available. There are also a number of local buses that stop nearby.
The train station is a couple of minutes level walk to the sea front. On the seafront there is a wide, level promenade. Next to the water front is a spacious area to walk along and set back there are some floral displays and plenty of benches. There is ramp access to a sandy beach. There is a traditional Victorian Pier with a family run, indoor amusement arcade, which has step free access. The Pier was damaged in the storms of 2014 and at time of visiting (2018) much of the pier is closed to the public, however a small outdoor section is open which given nice views of the town and there are a couple of benches. The promenade leads to the harbour area, where you can get a ferry to near by village of Shaldon, however I didn't use the ferry, as the boat is small and there is a plank of wood with no handrail which is used as a ramp for people to get on and off the boat. However, there are buses that go to Shaldon. There is a medium sized town centre with independent and chain store, cafes, restaurants and pubs. Some of the shopping streets are pedestrianised. I ate at the Jolly Good Fish Café, a traditional fish and chip café, see my separate review. Also look out for a shop called Folk Handles, which is a nod to the famous Two Ronnies sketch. There is also an outdoor, heated Lido (swimming pool), two theatres, museum/ heritage centre and art gallery, however I didn't visit these places when I visited.
I saw a sign for public toilets on the sea front, but I didn't use them during my visit.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
Teignmouth is a nice, traditional, quiet low key seaside resort.
