Torquay Tribute Weekend With Exeter Christmas Market 2023
Party with the Greats! Sing and dance your weekend away with live tribute acts!
If you love being beside the seaside, no matter what the time of year, then this super festive break is for you. In the run up to Christmas, many of our hotels go all out on fabulous live cabaret entertainment as the nights draw in and this weekend is no exception! We stay in upgraded superior bedrooms at the popular and centrally located Riviera Hotel, well-known for its incredible live entertainment, bingo and indoor swimming pool. The nightly entertainment will have featured performances from the best tributes found on the English Riviera.
So relax with friends or your loved ones at the bar, enjoy great homestyle meals and entertainment in the festively decorated ballroom. If you're feeling a little more independently-minded, then our hotel is well located in the heart of Torquay, which makes this lovely resort really easy to explore on foot.
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 a stroll 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.
