Axminster is a charming market town in East Devon, steeped in history and surrounded by beautiful countryside. The town's origins can be traced back to the Roman era, although it really began to flourish during the medieval period. Today, Axminster is best known for its world-famous carpet industry and as the birthplace of celebrity chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.

One of the main attractions in Axminster is the Axe Valley Heritage Centre, which tells the story of the town's rich history through interactive displays and exhibits. Visitors can also explore St Mary's Church, a beautiful 15th-century building that boasts stunning stained-glass windows and intricate carvings.

Throughout the year, Axminster hosts a variety of events and festivals that are sure to appeal to visitors of all ages. Highlights include the annual Axe Vale Festival of Gardening & Crafts, which takes place every June; and the popular River Cottage Food Fair, which celebrates local food producers and artisanal products from across Devon.
