Mini guide to Paignton

     

Situated in the beautiful Tor Bay in the southwest of England, the lively seaside town of Paignton is a popular resort in the summer, which especially appeals to families with children. Tourists are drawn to the long golden beaches and the variety of attractions and activities on offer for the whole family.

The beach is the centre of the activity in the daytime when the sun is shining, while the picturesque harbour at the southern end is loaded with yachts, fishing boats and lively activity. Farther north is the long pier, with its amusements and attractions stretching out into the sea.

The highlight in the town itself is the beautiful Oldway Mansion, an elegant stately home that was built by sewing-machine giant Isaac Singer in the late 19th century. Also of note in the town is Paignton Zoological and Botanical Gardens, with their six tropical zones, while the Green is frequently host to a funfair.

For leisure visitors can visit the park and boating lake at Goodrington Sands, the Seashore and Interpretation Centre and the Quaywest Waterpark, with its huge water slides. You can also go fishing and diving in Paignton and there are plentiful bars, pubs and restaurants along the esplanade.

Paignton also happens to be on the Torbay and Dartmouth Steam Railway line, a scenic section of railway running along the Tor Bay coast. Cruises along the coast to Brixham and Dartmouth are also popular and a stroll around Dartmouth is a must. Vibrant Torquay is just north of Paignton, while the lonely and stark landscape of Dartmoor National Park is an easy drive from the town.

The M4 and M5 motorways provide access to Paignton and trains run to the town all day from Waterloo and Paddington stations in London. National Express coaches have multiple services to Paignton from major cities throughout the UK including Bristol and London, while the nearest international airport is at Bristol.
