The English Riviera - The perfect choice:

The English Riviera is a resort in the truest sense of the word, attracting visitors of all ages and interests throughout the year. Undergoing a water front regeneration and a number of new attractions in Torquay and accommodation schemes, Torquay has something for everyone and for all ages, at all times of the year!

Torquay has been one of the UK 's top holiday destinations since Victorian Times when the gentry promenaded, bathing huts were wheeled down to the beaches and anyone who was anyone had an attractive villa overlooking the sea.

It was the Victorians who first used the English Riviera name to describe their favourite resort and their legacy remains to this day with sparkling white villas perched on the verdant hilltops, beautiful gardens around the seafront and elegant Victorian facades along the main streets.

Don't be fooled by the Victorian ancestry however, Torquay is also a vibrant and forward thinking resort attracting visitors of all interests, from Art and Culture afficionados to marine enthusiasts.

Torquay's famous seven hills provide the backdrop to a waterfront scene that matches anything you'll find on the French Riviera.

Stunning panoramic views along 22 miles of coastline:

There are 22 miles of coastline, cliffs, coves and beaches and walks to rival any in the South West of England, with a climate that belongs somewhere much further south. There are opportunities for surfing, safe swimming, diving, sailing, angling and wonderful opportunities to study the natural wildlife at your leisure.

Stunning views are to be seen just about every where across Torbay, out over the English Channel , along the 40 miles of Lyme Bay to Portland Bill or inland towards the Ten Tors Dartmoor. Torquay is an ideal base from which to visit Dartmouth , Totnes, Exeter and Plymouth , all of which are only a few miles distant.

Brixham:

Brixham ~ Famous for its Napoleonic connections:

Brixham is primarily a fishing port within Torbay and has a long and rich history. In the lee of Berry Head, famous for its Napoleonic connections, its lighthouse and magnificent limestone cliffs, Brixham remains a popular resort with a rich maritime history and plenty of activities for the young and old alike.

A Royal Estate:

Berry Head was a promontory fortress and hospital constructed in the Napoleonic period, but situated on much earlier settlers remains. These earthworks were probably of from the Early Iron Age. The Berry Head earthworks, pottery, and coins suggest a late Celtic trading settlement, persisting into Roman times.

Palaeolithic man, may also have resided in Brixham, with evidence of occupation in the "Windmill Cave". Brixham was originally a royal estate in Saxon times, pre-conquest (1066) and stretched as far as Kingswear and Galmpton. (It is thought that the name "Brixham" probably came from Brioc's village . Brioc was an old English personal name and ham is an ancient term for village.

Brixham Harbour a famous fishing port:

Brixham is more famous as a fishing port, still active and producing a good catches daily. Originally competing with Torquay and Paignton, it eventually dominated and remained the only active port. In the 1800's as many as 250 vessels fished out of Brixham, from large trawlers to inshore boats, employing over 1,500 people.

The fishing industry all but collapsed at the end of the second world war. The old harbour originally nestled in central lower part of the town, with natural protection, has been replaced and protected by the new harbour and eventual breakwater.

Sir Francis Drake & the Golden Hind:

Stroll in the opposite direction and you will see a replica of Drake's famous Golden Hind and farther around will be the Marina, leading onto Breakwater beach and the Breakwater itself. On a warm day, watch the seagulls glide up the breakwater on thermals enjoying themselves, or the fishermen lined up to catch a sea monster of their own.

Brixham is a true maritime town, with a rich heritage; it is surrounded by superb landscape and wooded cliffs reaching to the sea on one side and the steep cliffs of Berry Head to the other. Kingswear, Dartmouth , Churston and the South Hams are all very close and may be reached by a short drive. Alternatively the South West Coast path runs right through Brixham!

Paignton:

Paignton is traditionally known as a family holiday resort. Why? Simply because of its beaches and friendly atmosphere. Like all of Torbay, Paignton was frequented by Victorians and some of the architecture still remains. Parts of Paignton can be found in the Domesday book and has been a small fishing port in years gone by. The sea once lapped at where the railway crossing now is, until reclaimed.

Marldon, a mile behind Paignton beyond the hills is a very old village and stills hold that community atmosphere, with their own country fayre, pubs and village shops. It is from this area that Paignton spread out and down to the bay area. Winner Street being one of the first streets to develop as a trading area behind Palace Avenue and Paignton Church. Many visitors never reach this area, but is well worth walking around. There are small shops, restaurants and Palace Avenue Theatre.

Great Paignton Beaches, Panoramic Views:

Paignton beaches are without doubt the best in the bay. All the pre-requisites are there: Gently sloping, very sandy, protected from prevailing winds, supported by a good infrastructure of restaurants, bars, ice cream kiosks, beach shops and marine activities.

The beaches stretch for miles and we would recommend (for the energetic) taking a days stroll from the far end of Preston to Elberry Cove and back. This will take you through Paignton Sands, Fairy Cove, Goodrington (North and South) Sands, Three Beaches, Broadsands and over the headland to Elberry cove. Fabulous views, watering holes on the way at Goodrington and Broadsands, sea shell and glass collection and fresh air!

Torquay

Surrounded by some of the most breath-taking scenery to be found in the UK, the Cliff Railway provides a vital and non-exhausting way for locals and holiday makers alike to soak up the peaceful atmosphere and take in the amazing views as they travel to and from the water's edge.

Torquay's busy harbour side and town centre are just a couple of miles away by car. Alternatively, you can walk there & back along the famous South West Coastal Path, with stunning scenery every step of the way.

The English Riviera is a resort in the truest sense of the word, attracting visitors of all ages and interests throughout the year. Undergoing a water front regeneration and a number of new attractions in Torquay and accommodation schemes, Torquay has something for everyone and for all ages, at all times of the year!

Torquay has been one of the UK 's top holiday destinations since Victorian Times when the gentry promenaded, bathing huts were wheeled down to the beaches and anyone who was anyone had an attractive villa overlooking the sea.

Torquay's waterfront is the focus of life in the town. Here you'll find the palm-lined promenade, seafront gardens, a lively harbour and an international marina. The new Living Coasts attraction adds to the variety of the new waterfront and the illuminated bridge is a great backdrop to a relaxing evening drink. Yet within minutes of Torquay town centre there are beautiful beaches easily accessible by foot, road or sea.

There are 22 miles of coastline, cliffs, coves and beaches and walks to rival any in the South West of England, with a climate that belongs somewhere much further south.
