Crowded beaches, horrible hotels, airport nightmares, excessive costs and family arguments! Holidays aren’t always the fantastic, amazing, away from it all relaxing times that we hope for. Yet most of us hang on to the hope that we will one day have that memorable, holiday of a lifetime. The truth of the matter is that it has nothing to do with cost or your age. But it has everything to do with who you go with and where you go for your holiday.
Paignton on the English Riviera is a very popular destination for families wanting to holiday in the UK. Not only does it have some of the most secure and safe beaches to choose from but the area also offers stunning countryside that’s just waiting to be explored. There’s also excellent Paignton accommodation that can be booked all year round.
The English Riviera is known to have more attractions than any other seaside town in the UK and is jam-packed with things for visitors of all ages to see and do. Here are our suggestions of just some of the many fun activities and places to visit in Paignton, including some that are just across the Bay in Torquay and the surrounding towns.
Torbay harbour is found at the western end of Paignton with its authentic fishing haven atmosphere. Daily ferry trips transport you to Dartmouth, Brixham and Torquay. Enjoy a variety of pleasure cruises and fishing trips.
Babbacombe Model Village
You must make a memorable trip to this realistic village, with over 400 models showing an idealised form of English country life. Explore the tiny waterfalls and lakes, country houses and farms.
A great day out for everyone, here at the Zoo, which is home to thousands of amazing plants and animals. Trek through the tropics, explore the forest, cross the Savannah and visit the desert, all in one day.
Splashdown at Quaywest
Become a water-baby at one of the UK’s biggest, wildest, wettest water parks. Thrill seekers can attempt the Devil’s Drop or the Wild Kamikaze flume rides, while the smaller children can have fun in the Tiddler’s Fun Pool and Submarine Splash.
Cockington Court and Village
Located between Torquay and Paignton, visit the traditionally preserved, thatched village where you can relax in a tea room. Take a step back in time and take a walk around the formal gardens, the woodlands and the ornamental lakes. You may be lucky and see an antique carriage drawn by horses on the green. Or if you’re feeling adventurous, follow the Murder Mystery Trail.
