Holiday Summary

  • Travel Type: Coach

4 days

It may face the English channel, rather than the med, but the coast around Torquay has long been dubbed the English riviera; famous for palm trees, piers and russet-red cliffs. At first glance, Torquay itself is the quintessential English seaside resort, a mild microclimate and an azure circle of bay.

Your Itinerary

Days 2 - 3 (or 4, 5 or 6) At leisure in Torquay with 2 included excursions.

Devon Coast, Brixham & Dartmouth
Along the famous Devon coastline to Brixham. This resort is primarily a fishing port within Torbay and has a long and rich history. In the lee of Berry Head, famous for its Napoleonic connections, its lighthouse and magnificent limestone cliffs, Brixham remains a popular resort with a rich maritime history and plenty of activities for the young and old alike. Then onto Dartmouth, another beautiful and well-preserved old port. As an area of outstanding natural beauty in South Devon, Dartmouth is truly beautiful and the River Dart provides many photographic delights, as does the town itself. Returning to Torquay via the resort of Paignton.

Plymouth
Plymouth is a vibrant waterfront city packed full of attractions. Come rain or shine you'll find something for everyone among the city streets, surrounding countryside and marine environment beyond. There are well-known landmarks, historical sites and natural assets to explore across Plymouth's many unique areas and districts. There's more family fun to be had up on the Hoe where you can climb the iconic Smeaton's Tower lighthouse.

OPTIONAL EXCURSION (5, 6 & 7 day tours only)
Dartmoor  
Purple, heather clad moorland, wide open landscapes, rushing rivers and obscure stone tors shape the landscape of Dartmoor. Picture postcard Dartmoor villages with thatched cottages and rambling lanes appearing around every corner, this is a land of folklore, myths and legends. Princetown, the highest village on Dartmoor, set in an expanse of high open moorland and Widecombe-in-the-Moor, set in the beautiful Widecombe Valley. In the village you can see Church House and the adjoining Sexton's Cottage. The building dates back to the Sixteenth Century and is of architectural and historical interest.

Return Day - Homeward bound with happy memories and after interchange onward to your home towns mid evening.
