About

The naturally inspiring sky of the English Riviera is ready to host the Bays flagship event.

RAF Red Arrows, RAF Typhoon and Battle of Britain Memorial flight display teams confirmed for English Riviera Airshow

The team behind organising the English Riviera Airshow have received confirmation that the RAF Red Arrows, RAF Typhoon, and the Battle of Britain Memorial flight teams will be appearing at the two-day event this June.

The English Riviera Airshow which is taking place on Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 June will once again host the best, noisiest and most exciting RAF display teams.

Back for the first time since 2019, the RAF Typhoon will roar across the sky on both days, showcasing its pure power and agility. A marvel of modern engineering, the noise, speed, and bright engine glow, the RAF Typhoon is guaranteed to thrill crowds.

To celebrate their 60th display season, the RAF Red Arrows, return to the English Riviera with their full nine-ship team. The iconic crimson jets, with their synchronised manoeuvres, will streak across the Bay on Saturday 1 June.

The RAF Red Arrows, UK display season is reduced this summer, as the team head to North America in August, meaning the English Riviera Airshow were incredibly lucky to secure them for another year.

The Battle of Britain Memorial flight, made up of the Lancaster, Spitfire, and Hurricane will gracefully display together on both days. Their gentle engine purrs pay homage to our history and the valour of those who defended our skies during World War II. A fitting tribute as the nation marks the 80th Anniversary in the D-Day landings later in June.

The two-day aerial-extravaganza also boasts an array of on-the-ground entertainment to keep airshow fans and families entertained for hours.  

The official designated car park for the free-to-attend event is the Victoria Car Park on Garfield Road, Paignton, and is just a short walk from the main event site on Paignton Green.

Since the first English Riviera Airshow in 2016, the event is one of the first airshows of the UK season. The stand-out coastal event continues to wow locals and tourists as they flock to Paignton seafront for the two-day extravaganza.

FURTHER INFORMATION INCLUDING THE AIR DISPLAY SCHEDULE WILL BE AVAILABLE HERE

 

IN THE AIR

Visitors will be sure to be wowed by the many flying displays throughout the day on Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 June.  T

ON THE GROUND

There will be plenty to see and do on the ground in our event village. Experience the thrill of the rides in the funfair, say hello to the many visiting military expert teams and crews, visit the local craft stalls, and re-fuel at the many food and drink stands. There will be plenty of other entertainment too!

ON THE WATER

As well as air and ground displays, there will be a variety of displays and demonstrations on the water.

Or why not experience the thrill of a rib ride, or a more gentle ferry trip across the Bay?

The Event Village will feature air display team stands where visitors can meet the pilots and browse local and national traders featuring everything from artworks, books, toys and more. Family activities, a fairground, food stalls and bars will also add to the Event Village at Paignton Green, making for endless entertainment for visitors looking to make the most of the weekend.

With some of the best seafood restaurants, no shortage of accommodation to suit all budgets, award winning beaches, palm trees and a fantastic choice of indoor and outdoor attractions, there’s no surprise that 165,000 people flock to the Bay to witness the jaw-dropping stunts.

The airshow is completely free (although car parking passes can be purchased) and there are some great clifftop vantage sites across the Bay, as well as Paignton Green itself. If you are staying in Torquay, we would recommend perching up on Daddyhole Plain, while both Beacon QuayMeadfoot Beach and Thatcher Point are also very popular. If you are over in Brixham, we would highly recommend both Berry Head and Battery Gardens, while more great spots in Paignton include Roundham Head and the end of Paignton Pier

The English Riviera Airshow holds significant importance in positioning the English Riviera as a tourist destination. Attracting large crowds from across the UK it has a significant impact on the local community and continues to be supported by the English Riviera BID Company. With so much activity taking place across the two days, visitors are encouraged to come along and make a weekend of it. Book your accommodation via https://www.englishriviera.co.uk/
