Devon is in the South west of England and is the 4th largest of the English counties and has a population of just over a million people. The county town is the beautiful cathedral city of Exeter, the other 2 major areas are the port city of Plymouth and Torbay, a conurbation of seaside resorts. Plymouth is also the largest city in Devon. Much of the county is rural (including national park) land, with a low population density by British standards. It contains Dartmoor 954 km2 (368 square miles), the largest open space in southern England.
Devon has a mild climate and the county receives generally warm summers compared to the rest of the United Kingdom, due to its southerly location.
There are a wealth of things to do in the county, too many to even begin to mention, but you can go to www.visitdevon.co.uk for more information.
