Paignton Attractions

Famed for its vibrant atmosphere, seafront merriments and glorious sandy beaches, Paignton is a lively seaside resort that has managed to retain its traditional charm and character.

The hub of this town is undoubtedly the bustling and colourful pier and its surrounding waterfront. Jam-packed with attractions for all the family including waterslides and crazy golf, Paignton provides a fun-filled feast for holidaymakers of all ages.

Life’s a beach

Days out in Paignton can be largely taken up around the beachfront, which is alive with entertainment, activities and traditional seaside fun. As well as the gloriously sandy shores and paddle-friendly waters, there’s also a multitude of watersports available with opportunities to learn to sail or dive or to charter a boat for the day. The seafront green also hosts many festivals, fairs and musical events throughout the year and as night falls the promenade restaurants and bars come to life under the soft light of the beachfront illuminations.

Away from the beach

Although renowned as a traditional seaside resort, away from the shores there are still plenty of things to do in Paignton. Take a trip on the steam railway and enjoy the spectacular coastal vistas, visit Paignton Zoo for a glimpse of thousands of animals and endangered species as well as the acres of activities, take in a performance at the Palace Theatre or discover one of the superb walking routes and cycle paths which stretch along the South West Coast Path.
