Wondering how to keep the kids entertained during a wet and miserable British summer? Come to Whimple Heritage Centre and do our new children's quiz (free). When they have finished why not buy our village walk booklet, £2 from the Heritage Centre shop, and learn more about the history of Whimple on a walk around the village? Wellies recommended.


11th July 2023- Our new village walk booklet is now available from the Heritage Centre and the New Fountain Inn- price £2 each. It features twenty sites of historic interest around the village, and is a great outdoor activity for adults and children. We are grateful to our Devon County Councillor, Iain Chubb, and to Whimple Parish Council for their support, without which this project would not have been possible. All proceeds will go to supporting the work of the Whimple Heritage Centre. Get yours while stocks last!


We are delighted for our Heritage Centre to be featured in Travelmag as one of 20 unique things to do in Devon 

We are delighted that the Whimple Wassail gets a mention in the book "Devon Festivals"by
