Welcome to Devon! Offering an outstanding natural environment with a range of nationally protected landscapes and international UNESCO designated sites. Devon is unique amongst English counties, as the only county in England that has two coastlines and two National Parks. Rich in history dating back to Saxon times, and birthplace to famous explorers such as Sir Francis Drake and Sir Walter Raleigh. The scenic rolling countryside, whether nestled in a patchwork of green fields or the wonderment of the vast moorlands of Dartmoor and Exmoor. The two vibrant cosmopolitan cities of Exeter and Plymouth has many stories to tell. The capital city of Exeter founded by the Romans and known as ISCA with its spectacular Cathedral with Norman origins and completed in mediaeval times. Plymouth, Britain’s Ocean City, from where the Pilgrim Fathers set sail in 1620 in the Mayflower on its historic voyage to America.
