Things to Do

If you’re a parent, then you’ll understand the benefits of having things to do on holiday. The English Riviera, South Devon’s beautiful bay, is a popular destination with families holidaying in the UK. In addition to safe, secure beaches and rolling countryside that's just begging to be explored, the area is jam-packed with things to see and do for visitors of all ages.

Plenty to See

The English Riviera has more attractions than any other seaside resort in the UK!
For families looking for things to do, Torquay is a hive of activity throughout the year. There are loads of beaches to choose from, Kents Cavern to explore and the brilliant Living Coasts coastal zoo to visit, where you can walk with penguins. There are also plenty of sightseeing excursions, and boat and fishing trips out into the bay. You’ll also find that it’s the HQ for a host of maritime events and regattas – but don’t worry if you don’t own a boat; there’s plenty of spectator points around the coast and each event brings its own festivals and celebrations.

Plenty to Do

Paignton is most famous for its wonderful zoo, whilst Babbacombe plays host to a world in miniature in the form of its acclaimed Model Village. In Brixham, you can find a replica of Sir Francis Drake’s ship, the Golden Hind.

For the more adventurous, there are some fantastic Geopark Discovery Packages to enjoy.

And your holiday doesn’t have to break the budget – you’ll find free and great value attractions wherever you go.
