Where to stay in Paignton

About Paignton

With long stretches of beach, a beautiful promenade and world-class attractions, it’s no wonder Paignton is considered the jewel of the English Riviera. Enjoy abundant watersports along the idyllic coastline or a riveting show at the Palace Theatre.

Things to do

Take a day trip on the Dartmouth Railway, a steam train that travels along wind-carved coves and golden beaches. Make your way across ancient viaducts along the River Dart, then board a scenic riverboat and tour Agatha Christie’s famous home at Greenway.

Home to over two thousand animals and plants, the Paignton Zoo features six specially designed habitats spread over 32 hectares. Admire animals from up close as you trek between tropical forests, desert savannas and damp wetlands. Then head to nearby Occombe Farm and taste fresh organic produce at the Farm Café while enjoying the company of sheep, chickens, pigs and alpacas.

Visit Paignton Harbour, which has a collection of maritime boats, scenic gardens and delightful cafes serving England’s famous seafood. Grab your bucket and spade and head to Goodrington Sands, where you can often spot the world's best sand sculptors carving out impressive golden creations.

For the best views of the English Riviera that the whole family can enjoy, spend a day at Splashdown Quaywest, the largest outdoor waterpark in the UK. Grab a mat and race down Devil’s Drop, an exhilarating 20-metre-long waterslide. Relax in a heated pool and refuel with a snack at one of Splashdown’s beachfront snack shacks.

Getting around

Paignton is located on the coast of Torbay in Devon, between Torquay and Brixham. The town is easily accessible by car, bus or shuttle, and receives regular flights from Exeter International Airport. Once in town, local buses offer transport.
