There are carnivals, fetes and fairs, music and theatre, regattas and fishing contests going on throughout the year.

There are also numerous interesting galleries, potteries and design workshops. Pubs and eating-places abound and the village is famous for its old pubs, including the Railway, a cosy bar, famous for its collection of old shoes and memorabilia. The hotel is a 17th century building full of history.
