2022 - Cosy Break In Torquay
The evenings are finally drawing out and after the long winter months what better pick-me-up than to plan a short break away - and the English Riviera must be one of the loveliest places to visit at any time of the year.
Noted for its mild climate, Torquay and the neighbouring towns of Paignton and Brixham, enjoy higher than average UK temperatures. It's even warm enough for palm trees to flourish all year round. The Torbay Palm has become the symbol of the English Riviera and has thrived in the area since it was brought over from New Zealand in 1820. This weekend will be accompanied by Crusader staff.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
After joining your holiday coach to the south coast enjoy a break in Burnham on Sea for refreshments.
Arrive at your resort hotel in Torquay late afternoon where a very welcome cup of tea or coffee & biscuits awaits.
At leisure in Torquay with one included excursion and one optional.
HALF DAY OPTIONAL EXCURSION: Lyme Regis.
Lyme Regis boasts breathtaking scenery and a special mystique, making it a sparkling resort for all seasons. Its historic Cobb and harbour are iconic features, set against moody blue cliffs yielding fossilised evidence of life on earth millions of years ago.
An ancient town featured in the Domesday Book, Lyme Regis is home to a number of historical landmarks and educational attractions. The picturesque and tranquil Lyme Regis is a great place to discover a lot you didn’t know about the UK's heritage. More details from your driver. £8 per person.
This afternoon enjoy tea/coffee & shortbread before your Bingo session. Freshen up before dinner and this evening's entertainment in the Gallery Lounge.
All aboard for your included excursion to Plymouth, Devon's fabulous port city. It's known for its maritime heritage and historic Barbican district with narrow, cobbled streets. Sutton Harbour is home to the National Marine Aquarium, where sharks and rays glide in a deep tank. (Admission not included) Also in the harbour are several marinas and a fish market, the Plymouth Fisheries. The Mayflower Steps are where the Pilgrim Fathers set sail for the New World in 1620.
Return to the hotel mid afternoon for tea/coffee & biscuits followed by a general knowledge quiz.
Dinner will be served in the Romanoff Restaurant followed by a disco entertainment. Raffle & quiz winner will be announced.
After breakfast, we return homewards breaking the journey at a suitable stop for refreshments. Arrive back at your local joining points early - mid evening.
