Devon Holiday Attractions
Devon is a county in South West England, bordered by Cornwall to the west, and Dorset and Somerset to the east. It is the only English county that has two separated coastlines. One on the English Channel and the other on the Bristol Channel. The county is mostly rural, and it has a low population density.
Area 6,707 sq. km
Dorset and East Devon shares an important coast known as the Jurassic Coast. It has received UNESCO World Heritage status lately and is the only natural World Heritage Site in England. Both the North and South coasts offer dramatic views.
Devon holiday makers will discover that it is a diverse county offering something for everyone, and a great place to visit at any time of year. Much of the county is moorland with some striking scenery, and many interesting attractions. That's why Devon boasts of a strong tourism sector for its economy. The towns of Torquay and Paignton are the main seaside resorts on the south coast and attract holiday makers from afar.
The climate of Devon is very mild. The south coast benefits from long hours of sunshine in summer. The North coast of Devon is not so sunny overall.
The Dartmoor National Park - an atmospheric and beautiful place - is the pride of Devon. Inland, hidden between the moorlands and attractive rolling rural scenery, are the quaint villages with thatched cob cottages. The vastly contrasting features make Devon a popular place for holiday makers.
Devon's life is full of different events - from sailing regattas and surfing, to long and tranquil walks, folk, food and garden festivals to vintage car rallies. Classic opera lives in harmony with traditions of modern painting and urban performing art.
Devon is a place to relax and explore the mystery of Dartmoor stone circles. Many writers and artists have found inspiration in Devon's landscapes. Agatha Christie and Samuel Coleridge among many others. 3,500 miles of footpaths along the stunning scenery will inspire you as well.
