Easter is the perfect time to visit the English Riviera and an Easter treat of a short break away is just the thing after the long, drab days of winter. If you want to get out and about during your Easter break, then TLH Leisure Resort in Torquay is ideally located to visit some of South Devon’s best local attractions. We’ve chosen our favourite top 5 things to do this Easter, whilst you’re here.
Paignton Zoo is within a five mile drive of TLH and one of the country’s top environmental parks. In a single trip you can visit the desert, cross the savannah, explore the forest and trek through the tropics
Babbacombe Model Village
Just a short bus ride away, or 10 minutes in the car. I’ve been a fan of Babbacome Model Village for years and every year it just keeps getting better. There are thousands of miniature models and figures, plus a 4D theatre, Model Railways, Where’s Wally– and of course an Easter Trail the children will love.
Go underground this Easter! Fun cave tours all day every day with lots of Easter activities to complete. Piece together the Dino facts to see if you can win an Easter surprise! Activities are included in the cave admission price, no booking required. Plus
• Go shopping like the cavemen used to
• Identify the fossils dropped by Cavog the caveman
• Take part in your own excavation for fossils
• Create your own cave art
Kent’s Cavern is one of the areas most well known attractions and a ‘must-see’ in my opinion. These ancient underground caverns go back 2 1/2 million years – you’ll get to see the most amazing stalactites and stalagmites as well as the jaw bone of what is to be believed the oldest human remains in Europe.
Spring Flower Walks at Greenway
Join the gardeners at Greenway House for a walk through the glorious woodland gardens filled with spring flowers. Much loved by its former owner, world-renowned crime-writer Agatha Christie, Greenway’s romantic woodland garden is renowned for its spring flowers – from camellias to rhododendrons, as well as swathes of spring bulbs. This walk and talk is a great way to find out all about what’s in flower, and the history of the garden.

I've worked at TLH for longer than I care to dwell on but have seen so many changes it's been like working for 3 or 4 different companies! I am now in Marketing and am involved in spreading the word about how great TLH is!
