The Sea Ilfracombe Maritime Festival, 2018

The Ilfracombe Maritime Festival is a weekend of great food and nautical fun, including a whole host of locally-sourced and freshly prepared North Devon sea dishes to tickle your taste buds.

The festival has been running since 2009 and was set up by local volunteers and businesses. Since then the event has gone from strength to strength whilst remaining free to enjoy. This is all thanks to the hard work of volunteers, charities, council funding and the generosity of Ilfracombe locals

The town comes together to offer two days of fun attractions, local food stalls, live music and family entertainment. Held near the sea-front and by the quay where the fishing boats come in, it's also within easy reach of other popular attractions. The festival is a wonderful excuse to spend the day in Ilfracombe, seeing what the historical coastal town has to offer. 

We're further along the coast in Bideford, ideally located to experience everything North Devon has to offer. At the end of an exciting family day out, it's time to relax in your Royal Hotel luxury room.

You'll need to recharge ready for your next day's adventure to other North Devon attractions, many of which offer discounts to our guests.
