A chance to see how good Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall's food actually is (though I doubt he's cooked in the kitchen recently). Interesting building, worth a visit if only for a cup of tea and cake.

Flat walk along the river, or head up the hill if you're feeling athletic. Kids will love the ducks and the busy play areas. The new cafe is good, too. Pool is okay but not as nice as the one in Crewkerne.

Small, but easy to get to on the train (much better than driving), and the long, wide High Stree of Honiton is well worth walking. Look out for Hot Pennies Day - remarkable!
