Ocean Backpackers provides ideal accommodation for school groups, so what does Ilfracombe have to offer for school education. Well, the Harbour (a minute’s walk from the accommodation) is a working fishing Harbour and is the home to Damien Hirsts statue ‘Verity’. There is an aquarium in the harbour and the Tunnels Beaches ( a short walk away) have some of the best rock pooling in the country and a fascinating Victorian history. Ilfracombe has a lot of history from tales of smugglers and pirates to the grand old days in Victorian times when holiday makers would flock to Ilfracombe by train and breathe in the fresh sea air!! Take your group to Ilfracombes quirky museum where many a tale of the town can be recalled!!Find out more about Ocean Backpackers
