About Us

Roundham Head, Paignton, Devon is at the top of the cliff with beautiful parkland and spectacular views out to sea all round – see if you can spot the charming Spitfire Garden.

Suggested Walk - Roundham Head - 0.9 miles (1.4 km) - North Quay, Paignton Harbour - TQ4 6DH  North Quay, Paignton Harbour

Easy - Surfaced paths and pavements with the option of beach section and steps. Main route accessible to wheelchair users.

A wheelchair-friendly walk around Paignton's Roundham Head, the hub of the town's sixteenth-century fishing industry. The headland's rocky red layered cliffs are topped with pines and sycamores, and there are extensive views, across Tor Bay to Torquay to the north and over Goodrington Sands to Brixham in the south. On a good day you can even see across Lyme Bay to Portland; but this is an equally captivating walk in poor weather, when the waves are dashed against the rocks and send plumes of surf high over the colourful line of beach huts at the foot of the cliff.
