Devon is a large county in South West England sharing its borders with Cornwall to the west along with Dorset and Somerset to the east. Its south coast abuts the English Channel and its north coast the Bristol Channel.
Devon is the third largest of the English counties and has a population of circa 1,110,000. The county town is the cathedral city of Exeter and the county contains two independent unitary authorities: the port city of Plymouth and the Torbay conurbation of seaside resorts.
The largest city is Plymouth with a population of over 250,000, whilst the administrative centre of Devon is the city of Exeter, (identified as one of the top ten most profitable locations for a business to be based). Exeter has excellent transport links, with two mainline railway stations, the M5 motorway and Exeter International Airport connecting the city both nationally and internationally. Devon's 10 districts are: Exeter, East Devon, Mid Devon, North Devon, Torridge, West Devon, South Hams, Teignbridge, Plymouth & Torbay (both unitary authorities).
Devon contains Dartmoor, the largest open space in southern England. The county is home to part of England's only natural UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Dorset and East Devon Coast, known as the Jurassic Coast for its geology and geographical features. Devon has seaside resorts, historic towns and cities, rural scenery and a mild climate; accounting for the large tourist sector of its economy.
Devon is one of the rural counties and like neighbouring Cornwall to the west, Devon is disadvantaged economically compared to other parts of Southern England, owing to the decline of a number of core industries, notably fishing, mining and farming.
North Devon is very rural with few major towns except Barnstaple, Great Torrington, Bideford and Ilfracombe. South Devon is dotted with small towns, such as Dartmouth, Ivybridge, Kingsbridge, Salcombe, and Totnes. The towns of Torquay and Paignton are the principal seaside resorts on the south coast.
The county has given its name to a number of culinary specialities including the Devonshire cream tea, involving scones, jam and clotted cream. Devon is known for its mariners, such as Sir Francis Drake, Sir Walter Raleigh, and Sir Francis Chichester. The poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge, the crime writer Agatha Christie, the dog breeder John "Jack" Russell and frontman Chris Martin from the English rock group Coldplay were all born in Devon.
