Description
Totnes is a small, safe and unique, unusual town. It is set on the banks of the River Dart in the heart of the glorious Devon countryside, close to the wilderness of Dartmoor and the South Devon coast. A historic town with a fascinating mix of lifestyles where students quickly feel at home and easily become part of the town’s relaxed ambience and life. Totnesians are welcoming and very friendly and always have time to stop and speak to you. It is also here where you still have a chance to experience traditional culture without having many tourists around. Within the UK it is famous as a centre for art, music and alternative living and therefore has always been the home of artists, musicians and authors. They all contribute to a rich and dynamic town life, with art exhibitions, shows, live music, dance, theatre and many festivals.

There is a bustling weekly market, which offers a mixture of alternative and traditional products. And on the busy High Street you find an array of small, independent shops, art studios, natural health centres, funky clothes shops and organic food shops instead of the usual chain stores. It is a perfect place for students, looking for something different and less touristic. Because of all facilities are easy to reach by foot, it is also a safe place for younger students and families.
