Paignton occupies around 30% of the English Riviera so it isn’t surprising that the town has mastered the art of catering to those who want a traditional seaside holiday experience. Whether on the beach, near the beach or away from it there are so many activities and amenities on offer, with events organised throughout the year. Self-catering accommodation is in abundance but often fully booked, particularly in the summer and also on the special events calendar. Visitors love Paignton and can immerse themselves in the nostalgia of an ancient fishing harbour for merchant traders that became a resort almost as soon as the railway arrived toward the end of the 1800s. And whilst the beaches are some of the most popular in Britain, drawing thousands of sun seekers every year, the charm of the town is also a major attraction.
There is something for everyone in Paignton
Bright, cheerful beach huts can be seen along the promenades, the village green always has something going on as it has done for hundreds of years, and because of the way the town has developed almost every type of activity is within walking distance of the pier and beach.
Paignton holidays can be enjoyed by all the family ranging from grandparents taking a quiet stroll in the evening along the promenade and parents going to the theatre to children enjoying fun and games on the village green or taking a trip to Paignton Zoo.
At the beach, you can participate in every conceivable water sport or just relax on the golden sand reading your book in one of the quieter bays.
Food and Shopping
Food is to die for in the area, with fresh fish and local produce always on the menu. Staying in Paignton self-catering accommodation means that you can purchase food from the markets to cook yourself or take advantage of the many fast food outlets to enjoy your meal at ‘home’. Going out to eat in the many restaurants is affordable with a variety of local and international cuisine available.
In addition to locally run grocery stores, bakeries and greengrocers there are also the usual supermarkets that you would expect in a busy resort together with top brand fashion outlets.
Anyone interested in antiques will have a field day in Winner’s Street picking up bargains among the antiquities there.
If you haven’t visited the English Riviera yet why not consider it next year. Paignton holidays never disappoint which is the reason so many people return, year on year, rather than change their holiday venue.
