Courses Discover Devon 50+

English and excursions designed for adults aged 50+

Discover Devon 50+


Our two-week programme combines an intensive General English course, taught in classes of 6 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+ with afternoon activities that explore the favourite places of some of England’s greatest writers.
