We make our way to Torquay and check into the Richmond Hotel.
Days 2 and 3
Two free days to relax and explore amazing Torquay.
An exhilarating and award winning day out as we explore South Devon by steam train, river boat and our coach. We journey to Paignton where we board our steam train for a nostalgic half-hour trip to Kingswear. We then hop on a ferry to Dartmouth where you’ll have free time to explore the ancient narrow alleys and cobbled squares or treat yourself to lunch. Later, it’s all aboard our boat for a ninety minute sail with commentary to the pretty market town of Totnes. From here, we board our coach to take in the vistas as we return to Paignton.
We head to historic Exeter where you might like to follow the City Wall trail, explore the thousand year old castle or visit Northenhay Gardens. The city’s attractive Quayside area boasts a selection of independent shops as well as traditional tearooms.
First up today is bustling Brixham, home to a life size replica of Sir Francis Drake’s Golden Hind and an expansive breakwater that’s perfect for a stroll. We move on to Paignton where you’ll find a busy harbour and a colourful pleasure pier.
We begin our day in the historic market town of Newton Abbot home to interesting shops and leafy parks. From here, it’s onwards to Teignmouth which has a Victorian pier, promenade and lido as well as a heritage centre.
After breakfast, we journey home. .
