As a land of contrasts, Devon has a uniquely diverse yet beautiful coastline. The fiery Atlantic currents sweep its coast to the north whilst the southern coastline is stroked by the Channel. The area is blessed by good weather all-year round, hence its nickname: the English Riviera! Visit its pretty villages, old manors and small isolated creeks and you will see where Agatha Christie, the queen of suspense, got her inspiration from. You may even start to feel like Poirot himself and try to crack the mystery of Devon’s idyllic landscapes yourself…
This region is rightly one of the most popular in England in terms of tourism. This charming and peaceful county has two stunning national parks (Exmoor and Dartmoor) and is also popular for its sun-soaked, beautiful beaches where water sports are a must-do. Just a few miles from Exmouth, the popular beach resort, is the county town of Exeter. Not only is it brimming with incredible historical heritage, it is also a dynamic city with much to offer in superb architectural surroundings: culture, shopping, activities and food and drink. Stroll along the lively docks, visit the impressive Gothic cathedral and shop ‘til you drop’ in the town’s 700 shops. The local speciality is Devon Cream Tea, a melt in the mouth scone topped with velvety cream and a dollop of jam, this dish is hard to resist!
Memorable towns, green countryside, sandy beaches, small traditional cottages…Devon is a kaleidoscope of magical locations. British charm at its best, there’s everything you need for great personal development.
This is the perfect place to recharge your batteries and improve your English skills at the same time!
