Devon is an inspirational place to live and visit, and as such has a rich arts and culture scene.
There’s a great range of museums and art galleries dotted around Devon. Excellent works of art and craft can be seen (and often purchased too) at locations such as The Devon Guild of Craftsmen in Bovey Tracey, the Exeter RAMM, Plymouth City Museum and Arts Gallery, Stone Lane Gardens and Mythic Garden Sculpture Exhibition and the Torquay Museum to name a few.
Devon has lots of famous and inspirational artistic landmarks, too, such as Damien Hirst’s Verity, which famously stands tall over Ilfracombe harbour, making for a stunning spectacle and a real conversation piece. On a smaller scale, many of Devon's cafes have taken the route of brightening their walls with pieces from local artists, most of which are also for sale.
There are also plenty of one-off or annual arts events happening all year round in Devon - take a look here to find one that captures your imagination.
Devon has been the inspiration behind many famous books and literature, and has proved to be a popular spot for filming film and TV too. Conan Doyle’s The Hound of the Baskervilles was set on Dartmoor, which also provided the setting for Michael Murpurgo’s epic story of Warhorse, which was made into a feature film directed by Stephen Spielberg.
The English Riviera was the beloved home of Agatha Christie, who used local surroundings in many of her novels, and this area today pays homage to her with various trails and attractions. Agatha Christie's Poirot was famously made into a popular television series starring David Suchet, with over 60 episodes made. The final episode of Poirot, ‘Dead Man’s Folly’, was filmed at Agatha Christie’s holiday home, Greenway house in Brixham.
