Inhabited since the Iron Age with the Celts establishing a hill fort on Hillsborough Ilfracombe is rich in history. Up until the 19th century Ilfracombe was a small fishing and market town, inhabited by fishermen and frequented by smugglers. During the Victorian era however, like so many other seaside towns Ilfracombe became a popular tourist destination, which was aided by the arrival of the railway. During this time the Tunnel Beaches were hand carved from the cliffs, and a great deal of the town was built up, the majority of its Victorian charm still remains today.
