Paignton is such a fun-filled destination that we believe it should be right at the top of everyone’s bucket (and spade) list! Famous for its colourful beach huts and award winning sandy beaches you can choose between Preston and Paignton Sands, nearby Broadsands or try a spot of rockpooling at Goodrington beach.

Go wild at Paignton Zoo voted third best zoo in the UK by TripAdvisor or if the kids fancy getting wet, head for Splashdown@Quaywest, the UK’s largest water theme park. Visit the fantastic free children’s GeoPlay Park then take a leisurely walk on the Pier.

Water sport lovers can try diving and kayaking or head out to sea leaving Paignton Harbour on one of our sight-seeing boat trips.

Paignton Green is home to a number of events and festivals all year round including Children’s Week, Torbay Carnival, live music at BMAD Motorbike Festival and Paignton Regatta.

Back on dry land we’ve got great value dining experiences, holiday shopping and fantastic entertainment once the sun goes down.
