  2. Autumn Breaks
    During the autumn, Torquay, Brixham, Babbacombe and Paignton all take on a different personality. With a gentle onshore breeze that helps to keep the temperatures warm, these traditional Devon seaside towns embrace the autumn with a blaze of festivals, events and attractions
  3. Christmas
    Celebrate Christmas in style this and visit Torquay, Paignton or Brixham. Christmas in Devon has everything to offer from rural retreats to harbour lights and magical steam trains!
  4. Train of Lights in Devon aerial with smoke
    For the very first time in the UK, and possibly the world, you are invited to take a trip on our brand new, magical Christmas Train of Lights! This truly spectacular illuminated journey starts at Queen's Park Station, Paignton, where our train with vintage carriages await you - decorated with thousands of lights. Fifteen minutes later, once you've had time to settle back into your seat, you will arrive at Churston Station where the dazzling show begins. As the anticipation builds and mere moments after leaving Churston, you will be propelled through the 450-metre technicolour Greenway tunnel that leads you onto the enchanted forest which is transformed by a multitude of lights and feature displays into a nocturnal extravaganza.
