Discover Devon

Discover Devon

With medieval towns and rolling countryside, golden beaches and fossil-rich cliffs, there are endless opportunities to enjoy the Devonshire landscape.

Travel through the quaint harbour towns of the English Riviera and discover relics of the pre-historic past along the Jurassic Coast, or ramble unspoilt countryside in two National Parks and five Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty – you’re spoilt for choice! The ancient city of Exeter boasts city walls, a Norman castle, and a stunning Gothic cathedral, whilst the cobbled streets of Exeter are brimming with craft boutiques selling local handmade goods.

The county of Devon is the epitome of typical English beauty, with a huge range of fantastic places to discover.
