The English Riviera

The English Riviera stretches across the 22 miles of Torquay, Paignton, and Brixham, otherwise known as Torbay. Known for its tropical plants, enviable coastline, geological rarities, and mild climate, The English Riviera remains one of England’s favourite tourist destinations. Each of the areas that make up The English Riviera offers something entirely different to the visitor, guaranteed to leave you refreshed and inspired.

The towns and villages that speckle the Riviera are diverse and plentiful. Torquay is well known for its esplanade of palm trees, seafront cocktail bars, and shimmering harbour. Babbacombe is famed for its iconic cliff railway, England’s tallest promenade Babbacombe Downs, and dog-friendly, crystal-clear beaches. Paignton offers all the excitement of Paignton Pier, the famous Paignton Zoo, and long sandy beaches stippled with ice cream huts and chip shops. Brixham’s narrow, winding streets, colourful hill-top houses, and fish markets delight visitors with their Devonian charm.

The English Riviera is one of eight geoparks in the UK and one of 140 geoparks worldwide. It received geopark status because of its interesting geological features and significant ecological areas, including Kents Cavern, Babbacombe Downs, and Berry Head. You can leisurely explore Torbay’s unique geological formations and enjoy unparalleled coastal views along the 630-mile-long South West Coast Path. There are numerous circular routes to discover in the area, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the tranquility of the surrounding nature.
