Devon occupies a sunny portion of southwest England. The large British county is made up of quaint harbor settlements like Torquay and Brixham, as well as vibrant cities with rich histories, diverse shopping, and lively nightlife. The real draw is the great outdoors, where you can enjoy sweeping coastal views and Dartmoor National Park's rugged moorland, rivers and valleys.

    There are plenty of things to do in Devon, from backcountry hiking and horse riding to sunbathing on windswept beaches and tackling Croyde Bay’s curling surf. Of course, no trip to Devon is complete without trying a traditional Devonshire cream tea, best enjoyed in a quintessential English tearoom.
