Local Tourist Information Centres and Shops

Paignton Library and Information Centre

Great Western Rd, Paignton TQ4 5AG, UK – 01803 208321

Fabulous new space with coffee bar, wifi and bookable computers on internet. Friendly locals and helpful staff. A valuable investment in Torbay culture by the local council.

I printed a ticket for the VIP parking on Victoria road for the Torbay Air Show. The library attendant was very helpful and quick to attend to me. She also had a very welcoming demeanour. I observed that the library is also being well utilised as compared to other small town libraries. The services being provided must be well tailored to the requirements of the customers.

The English Riviera Wheel

10-12 Vaughan Rd, Torquay TQ2 5EQ, UK – 0115 967 9991

The wheel was excellent with great views. The T2 cafe next to it however had the most miserable and sarcastic woman serving. It seemed like we were troubling here by purchasing food and drink there and due to her being so busy being grumpy and sarcastic, she burnt our first lot of doughnuts, she did swap them after asking 'and what are you waiting here for?' as she'd forgot them. The crepe was lovely and I would definitely use the wheel again, but look elsewhere for sustenance and a way welcoming service.

Absolutely beautiful views on this wheel totally breath taking. I loved going in this with my 9 year old son. Here are some of the views we saw.

Very pretty little unspoilt Harbour. Lovely coffee shop.

Villa Marina

Tor Park Rd, Torquay TQ2 5BQ, UK – 01803 292187

Our long weekend stay here was very nice. Chris who greeted us on our arrival is brilliant as he was very helpful & informative. Nothing was too much trouble for Chris & the food for breakfast was very nice. The rooms were kept very clean & there was also fridge in the room which made a change for a small b & b. We recommend this b & b to anyone.

Excellent place to stay,Chris looks after you above and beyond your expectations, would fully recommended you stay at villa marina

Boat Trips & Excursions - if available

Ashleys Fishing Trips

29 Roundham Rd, Paignton TQ4 6DW, UK – 07767 622727

I don't normally do reviews but just seen the negative reviews and thought that I had better add some balance. We have been on the two hour mackerel fishing trip today on the Boy Richard with my Son and his mate. The skipper and his mate were really friendly and knowledgable, they found a great place to fish and helped everybody as much as possible. We really enjoyed ourselves and the only criticism that I can give is that we left late and returned on time, we probably lost 15 minutes but had a great time and really good value.

Brilliant fishing trip

English Riviera Sight Seeing Tours

Torquay Station/Rathmore Rd, Torquay TQ2 6NU, UK – 01803 215652

Must beautiful place visited from England!!!

Paignton Pleasure Cruises

Paignton Ferry, C/O Paignton Pleasure Cruises, Paignton Harbour, Paignton, Devon TQ4 6DW, UK – 07767 622727

Very pleasant ferry crossing to Torquay and back to Paignton. Return ride included a relaxed and funny commentary over the speakers. Well worth the trip and a much more relaxing way to visit the Living Coast than taking the car. Ferries run once every hour

Great way to cut across to another part of devon for a couple of hours or even just enough being out at sea and enjoying the amazing views. Always friendly and cheerful and also reasonable prices. Always remember to take sun cream or apply before, especially during the height of summer.

Local Parks & Gardens

Torbay Park

Adelphi Rd, Paignton TQ4 6AW, UK – 01803 207963

In need of some landscaping, trees and general TLC. More benches and better protection from the road for dogs and children playing on the park would improve the park, too. This was the first park I studied for my research project called Park & Write

Abbey Park

Torbay Rd, Torquay TQ2 5DG, UK – 01803 207797

A large park right by the seafront. Chill put non the grass, or rent some clubs and play pitch and put, or bowls or even tennis. There is also a crazy golf and a pretty decent cafe as well. Or take a walk through the gardens. Also home to the fairs that pass through, anyone holidaying in Torquay will likely spend some time in Abbey Park.

Small park. Nice little play area to take children near the river, which ALWAYS has ducks. Swimming baths are modest... I recommend you book a slot instead of just turning up.

Preston Gardens Car Park

Old Torquay Rd, Paignton TQ3 2RA, UK – 01803 207695

Gardens are nice and quiet sun there all day nice for a picnic. Seating also around gardens shade from the trees .

It's fine. There are no facilities to speak of , but there is limited free parking available for the local stores.

Great website!. Click below to find gardens open during the year around Torquay or Devon. There are photos and lots of detail about the garden.
Kirkham House

Kirkham St, Paignton TQ3 3AX, UK – 01803 522775

Kirkham House is a late medieval stone house in Paignton, Devon, England. It is believed to be a 14th or 15th century building. The house was designated a Grade II* listed building on 13 March 1951. There is no documentary evidence of who built Kirkham House or when. The design suggests that it is of 14th or 15th century origin, and it has been called "The Priest's House", suggesting the residence of a church official, or a priest of the Kirkham Chantry. The house may have been built as the residence of a prosperous local merchant. Mrs Ada Frances Jennings bequeathed the house to the nation in 1960, together with a sum of money for its repair. The stone and plasterwork have been extensively renovated, but many of the original oak beams and carvings can still be seen. The building contains reproduction furniture and tapestries in the medieval style.

Excellent . Shame it's not more open to th public and advertised more
