About Devon (Beer)

This charming fishing village in south-east Devon grew up around a smugglers' cove and its fascinating history makes it popular with visitors - particularly exciting is the story of smuggler Jack Rattenbury, nicknamed "Rob Roy of the West".

Visit the famous Beer Quarry Caves, where 19th century smugglers like Jack would store contraband, and which are the main source in England for Beer stone, used in the construction of many cathedrals and churches and even in Buckingham Palace. A large part of Beer's history revolved around the making of lace, and former customers have included Queen Victoria (the flounce for her wedding dress was made here) and the Prince and Princess of Wales.

Today the main feature of Beer life is fishing, and since there is no harbour it is a daily occurrence to see boats winched up the beach using steel cables. Be sure to sample some of their haul in one of the delightful restaurants that dot the area, or hire a motor-boat and try some mackerel-fishing for yourself!

For those who like to walk, a visit to the Jubilee Gardens with a pretty view over village and cove is bound to please, and from there you can follow the brook through the town and down to the sea. The saying goes that you are not a true Beer local until you have fallen into the brook... perhaps more likely after a spot of ale at one of the local pubs!

If visiting Beer in August you might catch the bustling Regatta Week, packed with events for all the family, from sailing to skittles and from fancy dress to fireworks. With its ever-warm welcome and abundance of local colour, there is plenty in Beer to capture your curiosity.
