50+ Discover Devon Programme
50+ Discover Devon 
English and excursions designed for adults aged 50+ 

50+ Discover Devon 

Our two-week programme combines an intensive English course, taught in classes of 4 students maximum, with engaging excursions around the UK's most varied, beautiful and evocative region. World-famous writers such as Agatha Christie, Charles Darwin, Rudyard Kipling and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle visited, lived in and loved our beautiful region of the English Riviera. Inspired by this, we have designed the perfect programme for 50+, linking lesson content with afternoon activities to explore the books, lives and favourite places of some of England's greatest writers.
