”why go elsewhere when everything is here….”
To be launched formally next month, the new town council website for tourists is pretty impressive – as reported in the Herald:
‘Superb’ new Visit Sidmouth website promotes the town to visitors
A revamped website promoting Sidmouth to visitors has been welcomed by the town council.
Cllr Louise Cole, who chairs the tourism and economy committee, gave a short presentation about the website at the town council’s meeting on Monday, August 10. She told councillors the site had been viewed more than 24,000 times during the first weekend of August.
Cllr Marianne Rixson described the new-look website as ‘absolutely superb’. She said: “I think it’s achieving our objective, and as a former marketeer myself I think this is really quite stunning.”
The website will be launched publicly on Monday, September 7, but is already live online and is also in a prominent position on the main Visit Devon site.
And here it is:

And part of Visit Devon:
Welcome to Sidmouth, the Regency town on the Jurassic Coast. A town caught in a timeless charm. Beautiful gardens, leisurely walks, Regency history and architecture, fine hotels, clean beaches and friendly shops. It’s all here in this lovely seaside town that nestles beneath majestic red cliffs and green hills with its own micro climate.
Pride in traditional service and courtesy is reflected in a remarkable variety of shops….”why go elsewhere when everything is here….”
Sidmouth has many sporting and leisure activities for all, boat and rod fishing from Port Royal, the sailing club, gig club, cricket club, golf club, rugby, football and tennis
There is no information yet about increased costs or savings related to using Visit Devon ( which took over from the Devon Tourism Partnership in 2016) as opposed to having a dedicated Visit Sidmouth website. However, it should bring Sidmouth to the notice of people who didn’t already know about Sidmouth; or that it was in Devon!
