Devon is a county of England, reaching from the Bristol Channel in the north to the English Channel in the south. It is a part of South West England, and bounded by Cornwall to the west, Somerset to the northeast, and Dorset to the east. Geographically, Devon is distinguished as the only county of England to have two separate coastlines (northern and southern), both of which are peppered by lofty cliffs and sandy shores; Devon’s bays are typically used as fisheries, ports or seaside towns used for tourism. The inland terrain of Devon is broadly rural and hilly, and has a low population density in comparison to other counties of England. Dartmoor, the largest open space in southern England is indicative of the Devonshire uplands, covered with wide moorland and underlying granite geology. In the valleys and lowlands the soil is fertile, traversed by rivers such as the Exe, the Culm, the Dart, and the Otter.

The economy of Devon is linked closely with tourism. The comparative mild climate and the landscape give rise to Devon as a destination for recreation and leisure in England, with travellers particularly attracted to the Dartmoor and Exmoor national parks, the Jurassic Coast, North Devon’s UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape and the ribbon of resort towns along the south-coast known collectively as the English Riviera.
