Attractions such as Damien Hirst’s ‘Verity’ statue, Ilfracombe’s Aquarium and the Landmark Theatre are all relatively easy to find and well worthwhile checking out. Whilst the local skate park which overlooks the harbour and the historic Victorian Tunnels Beach are both not so visible but well worth the effort of discovery.
