Bideford has been twinned with the French town of Landivisiau in Brittany since 1976. Landivisiau is situated about 25 kilometres south of the ferry port of Roscoff. Very strong links with Landivisiau have been built up over the last thirty years by the Bideford Twinning Association which organises the twinning on behalf of the Town Council.
