Things to Do

Search online for hundreds of things to do at the English Riviera such as various attractions and events.



Put away the sat-nav, fold up the road maps and explore the English Riviera on foot. While a car is convenient, there’s plenty of scope for walkers of any age to leave the stresses of daily life behind, and get to grips with the stunning countryside by exploring the paths and trails that criss-cross the region. Days out on the English Riviera don’t have to cost any more than the price of a few sandwiches to keep you going!

South West Coast Path

Walking is one of the most popular holiday pastimes here. With a unique coastline, peaceful paths and the opportunity to stumble upon hidden coves or villages, it’s easy to see why. The English Riviera has a total of 22 miles of coastline – all of which can be discovered on the South West Coast Path, which runs along South Devon’s beautiful bay between Maidencombe in the north to Sharkham Point beyond Brixham in the south.

Of course, this doesn’t have to be tackled all in one day! Bite-sized chunks of the route can be undertaken at your leisure, and along the way you’ll get to see such Geopark highlights as Berry Head National Nature Reserve, ancient woodlands near Brixham, over 20 beaches and fantastic sea views.

A new book, “Walks Along the South West Coast Path – Exmouth to Dartmouth”, is available to purchase from Visitor Information Centres and online at Amazon. Here you’ll find numerous great suggestions for a fit and fun day out for all the family.
