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.

— My favorite thing about AllTheRooms is that it combines both rentals and hotels available so you can see an entire view of what is available in a certain area. I was able to see listings on AllTheRooms that I never even saw on other travel sites!
— I travel to Boston regularly and I like to use AllTheRooms as it’s tricky to find good accommodation at a good price. The platform is easy to use and provides a complete set of features that saves me time and money on every trip
— I love All the Rooms because instead of having to check one place for home rentals, another for hotel, another for bed and breakfasts, and yet another for a room rental in a private residence, I can finally see EVERYTHING at one site; saving me considerable time
