It is sometimes said that Devon is England’s most diverse county, with an endless array of things to see and do, something, in fact for everyone, no matter where their interests lay. With tourism being such a prominent industry in this spacious county, it has been well geared up to entertain visitors for well over 150 years. However, it’s not just the manmade attractions on offer, but the great outdoors in all its many forms that will delight and thrill the visitor.
It’s difficult to sum up just how much there is on offer to the visitor but to start with it’s worth pointing out that it would be easy to spend a week in Devon without spending any money on any entry fees.
Walking opportunities are prolific here, whether one enjoys the wild, open expanses of Dartmoor or Exmoor National Parks, the coastal path that runs for miles along the North and South Devon coasts, or the footpaths and lanes that take one on adventures across the rolling green hills, lush woodland, and through charming, old communities. The same freedom applies to lovers of bicycling, horse riding, and nature lovers. Devon is an outdoor enthusiast’s ideal playground, including the water sport loving visitor.
All around the county, there is an abundance of visitor attractions of all types, from national trust properties and fabulous gardens, to theme parks, zoos and aquariums; from steam railways and religious buildings, to cave systems and medieval underground passageways; from museums aplenty and galleries, to castles and gin distilleries.
Add to that the great shopping opportunities, year-round selection of festivals, performance and the arts, wonderful country parks, many sporting opportunities, multiple layers of history, some of England’s prettiest scenery, and thatched cottages dotted all around Devon, and there’s more than enough to fill a lifetime of visits to this rather special area.
