Clovelly is a beautiful, picturesque fishing village, steeped in maritime atmosphere and history. It was once owned by the Queen of England!Book Tickets
Our coastal villages are often seen as remote places for retreat and relaxation. However, they have often been on the front line of history – from the
arrival of Christianity to battles with neighbours and nature; from slave trading to the birth of modern tourism.
Thanks to a powerful and pioneering woman, Clovelly found itself at the forefront of the Victorian seaside holiday revolution. Even today cars are
banned and the village is privately owned, helping to preserve it as a reminder of a bygone age”.
The Christmas lights turn on is a magical time in Clovelly. Starting at 4 pm in the afternoon, a local brass band leads the procession down to the harbour, with festive Christmas carols sung along the way.
There’ll be a hog roast, hot dogs, Christmas grog and other refreshments available at the Harbour and Lifeboat Station. Then, Father Christmas will make a surprise visit!
Entrance fee: £10 per car at the Visitor Centre after 2 pm. All proceeds will go to the R.N.L.I.
