The English Riviera region

The English Riviera comprises Torquay, Paignton and Brixham set in a beautiful sheltered cove and is one of the most popular British holiday destinations. From National Trust walks and pretty villages, sandy beaches and family attractions to the cosmopolitan buzz of Torquay, The English Riviera has an amazing range of activities and events that will please everyone.

Torquay is the liveliest resort of the three offering and array of wonderful restaurants, cafes, bars, attractions and shops plus the famous ‘Living Coasts’ coastal zoo. Follow the coastal path round the bay and you will reach Paignton, with its long sandy beach, pier, attractions and harbour all close together it’s perfect for the family, and Brixham, a beautiful working fishing village with a lively atmosphere and character that will not disappoint.


The heart of the town is the harbour which is lined with cafes, bars and restaurants; a great place to watch the world go by. From here, take a pleasant stroll along the marina with the area’s trademark palm trees, or hop on a boat for a cruise across the bay or round to Dartmouth. The Living Coasts, The Princess Theatre and Pavilion shops are also located here. Torquay is rich in Victorian architecture and identity as the country’s first ‘resort’.

Torquay is host to many more attractions, including Babbacombe Model Village, Kents Cavern, Torquay Museum. Or take a trip back through time to Cockington Village where thatched roofs prevail and watch a blacksmith working in the 14th Century forge.

Those looking for a beach will not be disappointed either. Torquay is the ‘sandcastle capital of the UK’ offering the ideal mix of sand and water, according to research conducted by Bournemouth University. With five Torquay beaches currently holding Blue Flag Awards for cleanliness and quality, you really are spoilt for choice.
