If you are going to be in the area around Devon, or are planning a trip and considering going to Devon, you are in for a real treat. Devon is a lovely place to visit with a lot to see and do.

South West Coast Path

If you like to walk, hike or cycle, you will enjoy the South West Coast Path. The South West Coast Path is the longest footpath in Britain and offers views of steep cliffs, isolated villages and hidden beaches. You are not required to walk the whole thing in one stretch as there are bus stops at various locations along the South West Coast Path so you can walk a stretch and then catch a bus either back to where you are staying or to skip a section of the path.

Lundy Island

If you like to scuba dive, snorkel or just enjoy the water, you will definitely not want to miss Lundy Island. Sharks, puffins and seals are all part of the wildlife that can be seen at the location in North Devon. To access Lundy Island, arrange for a seat on the MS Oldenberg, which sails to Lundy Island several times a week. You can embark on the MS Oldenberg to Lundy Island from either Bideford or Ilfracombe.


The capital of Devon is Exeter, and this city has a lot of sights to see and things to do. You can walk around their university, check out a Norman cathedral, or explore Roman ruins. If you enjoy shopping and taking in the atmosphere of a quaint downtown area, you will love Exeter's quayside, which has been renovated. There are many antique shops to browse around in or you can check out some local crafts. When you are tired and hungry, pop into one of the pubs for a bite to eat and a rest before moving on to the next activity.

Devon is a beautiful area and an ideal vacation destination. When planning your next trip, you should start planning which Devon attraction you would like best, but be forewarned that you might have a hard time choosing among the many options.
