    Once upon a time, Topsham was one of the busiest ports in England although it's hard to imagine now. The dock is situated in a particularly useful position, even though the river was initially navigable for boats all the way to Exeter. The maritime history of the town is genuinely incredible and you can learn all about it at the Topsham Museum.

    Today, the dock offers lovely views over the moored boats on the Exe. There's an antique shop full of interesting items and a pub with lots of outside seating.

    Topsham is a town near to Exeter in the county of Devon, England, on the east side of the River Exe, immediately north of its confluence with the River Clyst and the former's estuary, between Exeter and Exmouth. Although village-sized, with a current population of around 5,023, increasing to 5,519 at the 2011 census for the electoral ward population which includes Countess Wear, which is its own individual settlement. Topsham was designated a town by a 1300 royal charter, until the Exeter urban district was formed. It is served by Topsham railway station on the branch line to Exmouth. In 2011 was the 150th anniversary of the railway coming to Topsham, on what is now called the Exeter–Exmouth Avocet Line
