Topsham Ways to Wellbeing

Thinking about how to take better care of yourself? Topsham has it covered…

We’ve never been more aware of how vital it is to look after our physical and mental health, and we are hugely fortunate to have so much expertise and so many options here in Topsham. 

The NHS staff at the Holman Way and Glasshouse medical centres are at our disposal for conventional health care – that could be a physical condition or if we’re feeling uneasy or distressed. 

In addition we have a wide range of other health-related services including advice on how to eat well and exercise better, hands-on help and counselling, plus spiritual support too.

Stay well, and enjoy Topsham.

Someone to talk to

Whether you want a medical professional, specialist therapist, help with healthy eating or simply someone to talk to, Topsham can help.

These experts focus on mental and physical wellbeing as well as counselling.

Join The Club!

Topsham is well-known for its clubs, groups and organisations – you’ll see that at our Join The Club event in May 2022.

Special interest groups and clubs from needlecraft to community singing can help you develop new skills, meet new friends or simply give back to the community.

Take a stroll

There are many ways to feel Topsham’s wellness wow factor. Strolling round our unique historic town and locale delivers exercise, fresh air and interesting surroundings.

Stand in St Margaret’s churchyard and take in the view down the estuary to Exmouth and Dawlish. Sit by the water and watch the swans against an extraordinary backdrop of historic Dutch-style houses. Walk or cycle on the Route 2 boardwalk alongside the Exe and take in a stunning sunset. Bikes can be hired from Route 2 Bikes or Co Bikes in town.

Be one with nature

Enjoying nature is good for our mental health and Topsham is the perfect location to get a wildlife wellness fix.

If you haven’t explored it yet, the Exe Estuary Trail on the edge of town passes bird-watching ‘windows’ onto the marshes where you might spot wading birds like the avocet and godwit.

Or take in the peace and beauty of the RSPB reserve at Bowling Green Marshes on the edge of town. There are ideas for walks and things to do here.

If you are a Love Topsham supporter, you can take advantage of some very tempting offers to help you get started – visit Our Business Directory to find out more.

As we move from pandemic to a ‘new normal’, it’s a good time to take stock and support your emotional and physical wellbeing is now. Restore, rebalance and refresh in Topsham!
