Torrington 1646


17th Century Mayhem!!! Tourist attraction for all ages, come rain or shine, where history is brought to life.

A visit to the Torrington 1646 tourist attraction is truly an experience that will be enjoyed by all the family whatever their ages.

This is history as never before as we travel back to 1646 and meet the characters who populated Torrington, North Devon’s forgotten site of the last major battle of the English Civil War.

See how they lived, loved, laughed and lied their way through the English Civil War.

Learn about life in the 17th Century — the secrets of the Physic Garden and the bum-roll.

There are opportunities to try on the armour and clothing of this period in history and to watch daily weaponry displays (weather dependent), all amid much fun and laughter.

Dare you join the Barber Surgeon and witness his wondrous treatments for ailments of the body and then enjoy some locally made refreshment.

Truly a day trip for a holiday to remember!
