The small but very beautiful Teignmouth has almost a thousand-year history, several attractions, is one of the favorite places for the rest of the British and is proud that in 1818 the great English poet John Keats was resting in it. But at the end of the twentieth century, the city received another reason for pride – the local group Muse, which for more than ten years has been gathering full stadiums around the world.
