Kingsbridge is a
market town and popular tourist hub in the South Hams district of
Devon, England, with a population of about 5,800. It is situated at
the northern end of the Kingsbridge Estuary, which is a textbook
example of a ria and extends to the sea six miles south of the town.
It is the third largest settlement in the South Hams to Ivybridge
which is the largest and Totnes the second.
Kingsbridge has been the main market town in the area for centuries.
Being situated within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural
Beauty (AONB) and its proximity to the spectacular south Devon coast
and sailing venues, such as Salcombe, Kingsbridge has developed into
a popular tourist destination. Its attractions include several
restaurants, pubs, a cinema housed in the town hall building, and a
museum devoted to the chemist William Cookworthy, born in
Kingsbridge in 1705.
There are two supermarkets in Kingsbridge; a Morrisons and a Tesco
Store - which opened on Valentines Day 2011. It also has a large
secondary school, Kingsbridge Community College, which has over 1000
pupils and serves the surrounding area. 'Coast' is the only
nightclub in Kingsbridge, with the next nearest being in Torquay
