|English Riviera Air Show - provisional dates (1 June 2024 - 2 June 2024)|
The naturally inspiring sky of the English Riviera is ready to host the Bays flagship event.
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.
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 Quay, Meadfoot 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/
