Lynmouth is one of the most poplular destinations in the National Park, Its spectacular setting at the mouths of the wooded gorges of the East and West Lyn rivers, hemmed in by gigantic cliffs have made it a place to visit since the era of the romantic poets in the early 19th century. Boat trips and surfing are popular when conditions are favourable. There are many gift shops and eating places, a National Park Centre, two museums to the 1952 flood disaster which made the village famous, and the equally famous cliff railway to Lynton.
