Famous for its long sandy beaches, level promenade and colourful pier, Paignton lies on England’s beautiful English Riviera on Devon’s southern coast. After the arrival of the railway this fishing village was transformed and became a favourite retreat for the Victorians. The long and flat seafront esplanade offers lovely views across Torbay with leisure facilities for the visitor. The town has some lovely public gardens and good shopping with an abundance of cafes and restaurants. With your free time you may like to visit the excellent Paignton Zoo on the outskirts of town or catch a bus along the coast road to the neighbouring towns of Torquay or Brixham. For those who like to explore, Paignton lies on the fantastic South West Coast Path with a chance to enjoy a coastal stroll and catch a bus back to the comfort of the hotel! We shall, of course, include some excursions of our own to discover the region further afield.
