Getting Oriented

.

  • Bristol, Wells, and North Devon. Bristol is filled with remnants of its long history while small towns like Wells and Glastonbury showcase the full flavor of the region. Exmoor National Park has an unfettered, romantic appeal.
  • Cornwall. You're never more than 20 miles from the sea in this western outpost of Britain, and the maritime flavor imbues such port towns as Padstow and Falmouth. A string of good beaches and resort towns such as St. Ives pull in the summer crowds.
  • Plymouth and Dartmoor. Though modern in appearance, Plymouth has some important historical sights. To the northeast, the open heath and wild moorland of Dartmoor National Park invite walking and horseback riding.
  • Exeter, Torbay, Totnes, and Dartmouth. Exeter's sturdy cathedral dominates the historic city. South of Exeter, relaxed Totnes and bustling Dartmouth lie close to the English Riviera resorts of Torquay and Brixham.
