Wellington Tourist Information

Once straddling the main holiday route to the South West – and thus choked with traffic for most of the summer – Wellington now breathes much more easily, though its wide, airy main street still provides a reminder of its strategic location on the old coaching and droving route between London and Exeter.

The town owes much of its development to the weaving trade brought here by the Fox family in the 18th century – their role and its importance are explained in the town’s superb museum.

Wellington lies in the valley of the Tone at the foot of the steep escarpment of the Blackdown Hills, here topped by the impressive 175-foot Wellington monument to the famous First (‘Iron’) Duke of Wellington, Arthur Wellesley, the victor of Waterloo.

More prosaically he is also remembered through the Wellesley Cinema, a unique and well-preserved remnant from the golden age of films in the 1930s and now the venue for a wide range of entertainment.

Wellington is an excellent self-contained local shopping centre with a fine choice of independent retailers.
