Attractions

Whether you're looking for intriguing history or intricate architecture, there's plenty to keep you busy around Devon. You can see the astronomical clock at Exeter Cathedral, take in panoramic views from the top of Smeaton's Tower in Plymouth, or visit the youngest castle in the country, Castle Drogo, near Drewsteignton.

If you’re a fan of wildlife, then you’ll also have Lundy and the National Marine Aquarium close to home. The aquarium is the largest in the UK and has now entertained visitors for over 20 years. Here, you’ll find living stingrays, barracudas and sharks in a 2.5 million-litre tank. Alternatively, you can take a boat over to Lundy where you can spot razorbills, skylarks and even a small population of puffins and peregrine falcons.
