How to use – Exmoor Visitor interactive map

How brilliant! Now you can search a map of Exmoor National Park for all the local events. With so many things to do, it’s definitely worth a look at the Exmoor Visitor map before you set off, or when you book your accomodation.

Here’s how to use the Exmoor map search

Look at the bottom of the interactive map – here is where you type in keywords (like… ‘red deer’) and choose a range of dates that you’re most interested in. Click the Search button.

A list of events will appear and their locations pop up on the Exmoor map. Simply choose a location or whatever you like from the list! Click on ‘reset map’ or ‘clear search’ to start again.

Because it’s based on Google Maps technology, this probably feels familiar. You can drag the map, zoom in and out, and toggle between a map view and ‘satellite’ aerial photos. It’s very handy for finding landmarks and car parks.

Don’t miss the tabs at the top – Things to SeeWalk RoutesFacilities – each has a range of useful markers that appear when ticked. Try clicking one or two… the map can show you photos, car parks, toilets, walk routes…

When you go to Exmoor

Make a quick stop at one of the National Park Centres (Lynmouth, Dulverton or Dunster) or the Visitor Centres (e.g. Combe Martin or Porlock ) to pick up local knowledge and ideas for even more activities.

The helpful staff will have FREE editions of Exmoor Visitor packed with events, the FREE Exmoor National Park Pocket Guide with loads of info about this fantastic national park, and they sell things like proper Ordnance Survey maps, walking and riding route guides, books, calendars, postcards, t-shirts and souvenirs.
