The county of Devon, in the south west of England, offers a wide diversity of scenery, from the wild moorlands of Dartmoor and Exmoor to the craggy cliffs and sandy beaches of the coast. The county is governed locally by Devon County Council from its administrative headquarters in the city of Exeter. Devon includes part of the Jurassic Coast, a stunning part of the south coast designated a World Heritage Site because of its geological importance. It also includes the National Park of Dartmoor and part of the National Park of Exmoor, including the picturesque villages of Lynton and Lynmouth.
Devon is a popular destination for tourists, with many seaside resorts on both north and south coasts including Paignton, Torquay and Ilfracombe, and the National Parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor. The South West Coast Path, a popular walking route, follows the entirety of the Devon coastline.
The county’s largest town is the city of Plymouth, a major port whose economy was founded on the shipbuilding industry. It is home to a large operational naval base, HMNB Devonport, and the thriving University of Plymouth. The city lies on the A38 route from the South West to Exeter where it joins the M5.
