Riviera Hotel is also ideally situated to access the English Riviera’s top visitor attractions on foot including The Real Crime Museum and Escape Rooms (1 mile). Go back in time at Kent's Cavern where you'll discover prehistoric caves, recognised as the oldest human dwelling in Britain and on the doorstep in nearby Wellswood (2 miles), a pleasant leafy district in Torquay. Torre Abbey Museum (0.3 miles) is a historic house and garden with a fascinating museum and art collection. It is the oldest building in Torquay, with a story spanning 800 years and was once the most important Abbey of its kind in England.
There is also an array of visitor attractions to keep the whole family entertained in neighbouring town of Paignton! You could visit Paignton Zoo (of TV fame) or for those feeling more adventurous you'll find Splashdown @ Quaywest, a waterpark with the renowned near-vertical 'devils drop' waterslide for the most daring. Back in Torquay, why not pay a visit to Babbacombe Model Village where you can experience Torbay in miniature.
For holidaymakers looking to enjoy the beach life, the English Riviera will leave you spoilt for choice. Along the English Riviera’s coastline there are 20 top beaches to choose from, ranging from wide sandy beaches through to private, secluded coves. 10 of the resort's beaches have received the prestigious Blue Flag and Seaside Awards, some of the best in the Westcountry and the entire UK.
There are 22 miles of stunning coastline, rugged cliffs, picturesque coves and beaches and walks to rival any in the South West of England, with a climate that belongs somewhere much further south. This unique and fascinating area forms part of the famous South West Coast Path and is also a UNESCO Global Geopark, one of only 7 in the UK and 140 in the whole world. There are endless possibilities for safe swimming, diving, sailing, angling and other outdoor activities and a chance to study the natural wildlife at your leisure.
Stunning views are to be seen just about everywhere across the Bay, out over the English Channel, along the 40 miles of Lyme Bay to Portland Bill or inland towards the Tors of Dartmoor. Torquay is an ideal base from which to visit Dartmouth (20.5 miles), Totnes (8.4 miles), Exeter (21.9 miles) and Plymouth (33 miles), all of which are within each reach by road.
Dartmouth Steam Railway Boat & River Company offers boat trips to Brixham (8 miles) and Dartmouth. Stagecoach buses and the local railway will get you to all other towns in South Devon and beyond. The steam railway is well worth a trip, where you can experience a steam train ride across viaducts and through wooded valleys, arriving in the picturesque town of Dartmouth with its quaint art galleries and famous castle.
Riviera Hotel is ideally situated so that you can access all that Devon’s Beautiful Bay has to offer. We look forward to welcoming you very soon.
