Notable landmarks in the town include Bedford Square, the Town Hall and the ancient Pannier Market that has been in existence for over 900 years.

Brent Tor is another local attraction, and perched upon this basaltic lava rock is the 12th Century Church dedicated to St Michael.

Tavistock is a great base from which to explore the many outdoors attractions of the area and those who are keen on exploring the natural attractions of this town will be spoilt for choice with walks along the moors and pristine fishing spots. There are five trout lakes in close vicinity to the town centre and there are many other popular fishing spots in the surrounding countryside.
