Paignton has all the ingredients for a perfect family holiday
including long sandy beaches, colourful atmosphere,
paddler-friendly waters and first class attractions.
During the summer months, life revolves around the seafront. But
there is also another side, which can be found at the 500 year old
Kirkham House and in the glamorous elegance of Oldway
Mansion. Oldway was home to the Singer Sewing Machine family
and its opulent interiors were modelled on Versailles, earning the
mansion the name of "little Versailles".
Paignton has four long safe sandy beaches making it a popular
choice for relaxing and safe seaside holidays. Its rocky coves
include an underwater nature reserve and rock-pooling is a
favourite holiday past-time.
By day there are many attractions - Paignton Zoo, Quaywest
Waterpark and the Paignton to Dartmouth steam railway, which winds
its way through to the pretty riverside towns of Kingswear and
Dartmouth. By night Paignton's seafront comes alive with
illuminations and is perfect for an evening stroll.
