Devon Details

Devon is a county in southwestern England, whose coastline contacts both the English Channel and the Bristol Channel. Tourism in Devon is very active, thanks to the variety of different types of attractions. Some of the most popular Devon attractions include the beaches of Torbay; indeed, this bay has been dubbed the English Riviera. Other types of Devon sights include natural parks, such as those of Dartmoor, Exmoor, and the natural UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Jurassic Coast, a scientifically significant coastline for its geology and geography. Things to do in Devon parks such as Dartmoor and Exmoor include angling, kayaking and canoeing; Englands longest footpath passes through the stunning cliffs of Exmoor, the highest sea cliffs in the country. The wealth of Devon culture and history also contributes to its appeal. When visiting Devon, you should definitely spend some time in the countys capital, Exeter. Here, youll be able to walk down the narrowest street in the world, Parliament Street, and you can check out its impressive Cathedral, founded in 1050. There are a number of small towns that you absolutely must visit during a weekend in Devon. For example, head to the very small village of Ashcombe to admire the 13th century Church of St. Nectan.
