Devon's Top Sights

2 coastlines, 2 national parks and history, culture and attractions by the bucket load, Devon is holiday heaven!

The beaches here are as magnificent as they are varied, from shingled coves to sandy bays. Many are tailor-made for surfing too, like Croyde Bay and award-winning Woolacombe.

Elsewhere on the coast, you'll discover picturesque fishing communities, such as charming Clovelly and genteel Ilfracombe. While along Devon's southern shoreline, the traditional seaside attractions of Torquay and the English Riviera beckon.

For sailing and watersports action, visit the historic city of Dartmouth, which is renowned for its naval college, castle and steam railway.
