Tavistock River Walk

1 miles (1.5 km)

Enjoy an easy stroll along the River Tavy on this short walk in the town of Tavistock. It's a lovely, surfaced path running along a rushing weir with old bridges to see on the way. The walk runs for about 1 mile along both sides of the river, from Abbey Bridge in the north to West Bridge in the south.
To continue your walking in the town head to the Tavistock Viaduct where you can enjoy a walk along the old train line with views over the rooftops from the elevated position of the viaduct.
The Tavistock Canal also runs parallel to the river so you can easily continue your waterside walking along the towpath.
