The South West of England, which includes the Westcountry, is known for Devon Cream Teas, driving down hedgerow-flanked lanes, pastoral scenes, and vacations at Torquay. Within this beautiful setting are higher education institutions such as the University of Bristol and Exeter University. This is a knowledge-based region of the U.K., with technological advances in aviation and aerospace, information technology, manufacturing, and other industries.
The South West of England includes the counties (shires) of Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire, and Gloucester. Curiously, the port City of Bristol, nestled in between Gloucestershire and Somerset is its own "ceremonial" county.
