Explore Paignton

One of the brightest jewels in the English Riviera’s crown, as you arrive in the seaside resort of Paignton, you are met with the welcoming sight of its long stretch of beautiful and easily accessible beachfront, promenade, traditional pier, colourful beach huts and green.  What's great about Paignton is that it is a compact resort, with the seafront and town centre shops all within close proximity, making it an ideal Devon holiday resort for that relaxing break away.  Once you arrive, you don't have to go far, but of course, there is plenty to see and do in the area if you wish to get out and about and explore.

Like the rest of the English Riviera, Paignton benefits from a mild climate and sub-tropical palm trees, giving that real continental, holiday feel, and when we are blessed with good weather, you could be anywhere in the world.  But, like all our coastal towns, they showcase their own beauty in the winter months too, so whatever time of year you choose to visit, you are sure to have an enjoyable stay.

Like its neighbouring resort Torquay, Paignton is part of the UNESCO accredited English Riviera Global Geopark that celebrates its extraordinary history and natural beauty, a testament to both its coast and countryside.

The promenade is a great place to sit and watch the world go by, or why not enjoy coffee and cake or a bite to eat at the Shoreline Bar and Restaurant?  It sits overlooking the sea and the Pier, and is open late in the evenings too, perfect for a relaxing evening drink. Or, head to The Boathouse which also boasts fantastic sea views and has regular entertainment, hosting local gigs and music.
