If you’re looking for the typical, traditional English seaside experience, Paignton will not disappoint. Located on the “English Riviera,” Paignton is a storybook beach resort for families with a rich Victorian history. Originally a fishing village, the arrival of trains transformed the town into a bustling destination for Victorian holiday makers. The seaside town is home to long, golden beaches, parks and a harbor. In summer you will find a lively town home to a variety of bars, cafes, restaurants and tons of activities. Paignton Pier is perhaps its most famous landmark and a charming reminder of this resort's Victorian heritage.
Once in Paignton, the beach will beckon with its sands just waiting for kids with buckets and spades, (this beach is claimed to actually be the best for building sandcastles!) and there are numerous contests to test your skills. Failing that you can take to the water and surf, dive, or paddle in the shallows. Don’t be put off by the English weather, summers here can be actually quite warm and pleasant.
Explore the Paignton Pier with its sweeping views across Torbay and typical fun fair diversions like dodgems, arcade games and crazy golf. It’s a wonderful place for good old-fashioned, noisy fun and a great photo op.
In the town you’ll find excellent eclectic cuisine in the many colorful cafes and restaurants.
Nearby Paignton Zoo will provide a fun day out for the family or you can hop on and old steam train at the Dart Valley Railway and enjoy jaw-dropping views across the coast of South Devon and into the beautiful Dart Valley.
