Devon is a stunning county in Southwest England that’s popular with both residents and travelers to explore, which also means it’s an area with many wonderful experience gifts available!

At around a four-hour drive from London (or just an hour and a half by train) this is a great area for a day trip or weekend away. The stunning Jurassic Coast hosts lots of water activities but there are also some more sedate ones if you’re getting a gift for someone who isn’t so much of a thrill-seeker.

In this guide, we’ve carefully selected the best gift experiences in Devon, for a variety of budgets and interests. We’ve also included some activities in Cornwall and Dorset, since they’re so close, that they could easily be experienced by someone who’s based in Devon.

Read on for all the coolest experience vouchers in Devon and surrounds, at every price point!
