38 things to do in Devon

Devon is one of England’s greatest outdoor paradises – a diverse county, from the classic rolling countryside hills, the great wilds of its two national parks, to dramatic coastline landscapes and sunny beaches, there’s something for everyone no matter what you’re looking to tick off your bucket list!

Devon is best known across England for its costal beauty, making a great place for watersports activities, from diving, kayaking to paddleboarding.

If you don’t have sea legs, then Devon’s diverse landscapes are the perfect place to experience the great outdoors – take to the skies and witness the beauty of Devon from above in this hang gliding experience, or explore the woodlands and countryside with this segway safari.

If you’re after something a little less challenging, then these wildlife activities will certainly leave you feeling a little more grounded – make some furry new friends at this charming miniature donkey centre, or go and meet these delightful otters at this animal sanctuary in Dartmoor.
