The cathedral city of Exeter is the county town of Devon. Plymouth is the largest city in the county and has a population of over 250,000 residents. Devon is also home to Dartmoor; the largest open space in southern England. The coastline in Devon is known as the Jurassic Coast and is part of England’s only natural UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Jurassic Coast consists of Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous cliffs, which document over 180 million years of geological history.
Historically, the economy in Devon was based in fishing, mining and farming. The decline of these industries over recent years has led to Devon becoming more reliant on the financial, agricultural and service sectors. Tourism also plays a large part in the economy of the area. The beaches of Bideford Bay, in particular Woolacombe, Saunton and Croyde offer some of the cleanest beaches with the best surfing conditions in the UK and regularly welcome tourists from around the world.
