Welcome to Devon


Sometimes known as Devonshire, this pretty county in southwest England is dotted with lakes, resort towns and beaches. Many of the towns and cities in Devon are placed in a ring along the coast, as the centre of the county is occupied by Dartmoor National Park. The towns all have their own unique character, from the fishing villages of Appledore and Brixham to the cobbled streets of Clovelly and the steep red cliffs of Dawlish. Seaside towns like Sidmouth, Barnstaple, Croyde Bay and Puttsborough offer some of the best surfing in England. The largest city in Devon is Plymouth, whose harbour has a long and important history.

Information & Facts

English is the official language, though visitors will be astonished by the variety of regional accents.

The currency is the pound (GBP), which is divided into 100 pence. ATMs are available in all towns and Visa, MasterCard and American Express are widely accepted; visitors with other cards should check with their credit card companies in advance. Foreign currency can be exchanged at bureaux de change and large hotels, however better exchange rates are likely to be found at banks. Travellers cheques are accepted in all areas frequented by tourists; they are best taken in Pounds Sterling to avoid additional charges.
