The town takes its name from an ancient bridge built to link two royal estates – Alvington and Chillington, and by 1219 was a market town. By the 18th Century milling was a major source of revenue for the town, and throughout the 19th Century Kingsbridge had an active coastal shipping trade, with thriving shipbuilding and tanning industries.

"Advisor was very helpful"

In 1798 the town mills were converted into a woollen manufactory, which produced large quantities of cloth, and serge manufacture was introduced early in the 19th century. During the 19th century the town had an active coastal shipping trade, shipbuilding, a tannery, other industries and a large monthly cattle market. The chief exports were cider, corn, malt, and slate.[6]

The town is at the head of the Kingsbridge Estuary. This is a wide expanse of water, featuring many shallow creeks. Boat trips on the river are popular and there is good fishing in the area. At one time, Kingsbridge was quite a busy port, trading cider, corn and other products for more exotic goods from far away places. There are several good pubs, caf├ęs and restaurants in the town, which is a good centre for walking holidays.

Kingsbridge has been the main market town in the area for centuries. Being situated within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and its proximity to the spectacular south Devon coast and sailing venues, such as Salcombe, Kingsbridge has developed into a popular tourist destination. Its attractions include several restaurants, pubs, a cinema housed in the town hall building, and a museum devoted to the chemist William Cookworthy, born in Kingsbridge in 1705.
