Rainy Days

Here on the English Riviera we have some beautiful weather, and not just in the summer. But of course, this is Britain, so the occasional rainy day is not unheard of. Fortunately, there’s no reason for the rain to put a dampener on your holiday, as there’s plenty to keep you and your family occupied in the great indoors.

For starters, and for mains and desserts as well, Torquay, Paignton, Brixham and Babbacombe have some fantastic restaurants, pubs and cafés to spend an extended lunch or dinner in. We’ve also got some wonderfully traditional tea rooms, where you can sample our world-famous Devon Cream Tea.

Beat the rain with fun indoor attractions
If you want to get under shelter, but not necessarily indoors, Kents Cavern is a great place to spend a rainy afternoon. A prehistoric cave system where Stone Age man once took shelter from things with particularly sharp teeth and claws, a guided tour of this fascinating subterranean world and its surroundings lasts a couple of hours and offers the perfect mix of education and fun for the whole family.

If you fancy catching the latest 3D film or perhaps taking in a show, the English Riviera, South Devon’s beautiful bay, has plenty of cinemas, theatres and other entertainment venues.

Museums are another classic hallmark of the Great British rainy day, and we’ve got plenty that old and young alike will love, including Torquay’s spellbinding Bygones Victorian Street. Or for all the fun of seaside from the comfort of indoors, head over to Paignton Pier for arcade fun, candy floss and more.
