We visited the Landmark theatre Ilfracombe for the Remembrance event on Saturday. It was one of the best Remembrance events I've attended with the community coming together for such an important 100th year occasion! The pavillion & cafe within the theatre where most of the...More

This ugly seafront centrepiece simply does nothing for Ilfracombe Victorian history nor its coastal setting, whatsoever. Its selling point is the very good Tourist Information, nothing else.The poor theatre has been badly managed and abused. Seems to attract suicidal skateboarders jumping off the roof.

We stopped at the Landmark Theatre for half an hour recently, and it's in quite a pleasant location, even if it does look absolutely hideous from the outside. The TIC, gardens and Cafe were open. With all the grockles, the toilets were terrible and without...More
