Car Free Days

Travelling around the English Riviera on your visit needn’t always involve driving! Getting out and about in the resort while leaving the car at home is very simple, with a comprehensive network of public transport and some very unique ways of travelling.

Stagecoach buses operate throughout the English Riviera and stop near the major visitor attractions. Their popular Hop12 service runs between Torquay and Brixham, and with a Day Rider ticket you can hop on and hop off as many times as you want. Other buses go up to Babbacombe from Torquay town centre, and along to the pretty village of Cockington.

For a value-added tour, board our English Riviera sightseeing buses that take in all the major sights of the resort, or find a seat on the Torquay Land Train: both have excellent and informative commentary about the English Riviera and are well worth a ride.

If you’re looking for something a bit different, then travelling by ferry or aboard a sightseeing cruise between Torquay, Paignton and Brixham is a great option, and you’ll get a fantastic view of the whole coastline from out at sea. There are numerous ferry services that operate from each town – see the listings below.

Fancy stepping back in time? Then enjoy a trip on the Dartmouth Steam Railway from Paignton, taking in some spectacular scenery on the way to Dartmouth. Make a car free day of it and book your Round Robin tickets with bus, boat and steam train, or why not try the new paddlesteamer that runs up and down the River Dart.

You can also travel by green ways to Greenway, Agatha Christie's holiday home on the banks of the River Dart - enjoy a ride on our vintage bus or hop on a ferry to Dartmouth, and then on up the river.

All of these options mean that you can sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.
