Lynmouth Pavilion project is seeking memories of holidays past and people who return year after year

Visitors who return to Exmoor year after year will be the focus of the Lynmouth Pavilion Project as it enters its third year.

The theme is The History of Tourism and throughout the year it will be looking at memories of holidays past on Exmoor.

An astonishing 85 per cent of visitors to Exmoor have returned annually – recently a member of the project team was talking to a visitor who has been visiting for 30 years, making two trips every year.

Honeymooners flocked to Exmoor during the 1950s, some returning every year to celebrate their anniversaries. One such couple are about to enjoy their 62nd annual visit to Lynton.

Organisers are appealing for accommodation providers who have such visitors, residents who were once visitors or anyone that has been coming here for a long time to get in touch.
