A role in The Mercy – alongside Colin Firth and Rachel Weisz – has put the charming but faded seaside town in the spotlight
Everybody admires Teignmouth (pronounced “Tin-muth”). The problem is, most people don’t know they have been there, as inter-city trains whizz by without stopping, and if you blink you miss the station. But this small seaside town is on the famous stretch of coast where Brunel’s Riviera railway line follows the curves of Devon’s red sandstone cliffs, and those who bag the seats on the east get views of the English Channel and the Exe and Teign (pronounced “tain”) estuaries.
