The iconic palm trees could fool you into thinking you were in the Mediterranean. The coast of Torquay is scattered with beautiful piers and russet-red cliffs. Enjoy long leisurely walks along the promenade and take in the relaxed atmosphere. Make time to walk up the steps of Royal Terrace Gardens. Remember to take in the amazing sea views across the bay at night with the lights reflecting onto the sea. Add an Agatha Christie connection and steam trains and it all adds up to some grand days out beside the sea.
On this relaxing weekend, enjoy visits to Plymouth and around the English Riviera, plus a delicious cream tea!

With its rich maritime heritage and its status as the regional capital for culture, Plymouth is one of the most dynamic and fascinating places to visit in Devon. If you’re a fan of all things nautical, then be sure to make a trip to Plymouth Hoe. Not only is it the backdrop for Sir Francis Drake’s legendary game of bowls, but it’s also one of the most beautiful natural harbours in the world. You can get incredible views of the Plymouth from Smeaton’s Tower. And don’t forget to pay a visit to the Barbican, a bustling array of specialist shops, restaurants, cafes and world-class attractions in Devon, all set against the backdrop of Plymouth's picturesque harbour.
Torbay scenic drive (Babbacombe, Paignton, Brixham) & cream tea (half day)
Babbacombe is a magical spot on the English Riviera, with great beaches and attractions including Babbacombe Downs, the highest clifftop promenade in England. From the top you can enjoy views of the spectacular South Devon coastline. Also at Babbacombe is the Cliff Railway, taking passengers down to Oddicombe Bay.
The seaside resort of Paignton with its long stretch of beautiful and easily accessible beachfront, promenade, traditional pier and colourful beach huts offer one of the brightest jewels in the English Riviera’s crown.
Life in the busy Devon fishing town of Brixham has always centred around the harbour, where heritage trawlers jostle for space with dayboats heading out to sea for the day’s catch, bringing it home daily to Brixham’s famous Fish Market. Here, in the heart of England’s Seafood Coast, the freshest fish and most delicious seafood is on the menu everywhere. Brixham is the quintessential English harbour, with a colourful and vibrant feel all year round, making it as ideal for a summer holiday with the kids as it is for a romantic winter break for two.
