Exmouth, in Devon, is one of the
oldest seaside resorts on the south coast. In the early eighteenth
century, it was popular with people from Exeter, who came to bathe on
its excellent beaches. Since then, Exmouth has grown to a town of around
28,000 people, offering visitors excellent facilities for fishing,
boating and golf as well as bathing. Visitor attractions include the
Country Life Museum and the A La Ronde house, a sixteen sided house
built in 1798 featuring a gallery decorated with shells.
