The lively seafront of Paignton and that of nearby Goodrington offer a host of attractions from the waterslides of Quaywest to crazy golf on Paignton Green.
During the summer months you will find the area hosts many festivals and fairs, in addition to the many yearly exhibitions and events which are held on the green.

If you crave peace and relaxation, you can pick a spot on one of the secluded beaches, inlets and coves that stretch along the coast towards Brixham.

Away from the shores, there's no shortage of things to do and visitors are spoilt for choice!
Take the steam train along the Paignton and Dartmouth Steam Railway to Kingswear, visit the endangered species at Paignton Zoo, or indulge in some history at the 500 year old Kirkham House or at Oldway Mansion, once home of Isaac Singer of Singer sewing machine fame.
An evening stroll along the seafront, under the soft light of the beach front illuminations, is a perfect way to wrap up your day.

With all the essential ingredients for a magical family holiday, Paignton is the ideal seaside resort.
