1 April 2022

There are always things to do for families in Torbay whether it be local attractions or great outdoor events. We’ve listed our favourite 5 activities this summer in Torquay and the surrounding areas which are great for families visiting the area and local families alike.

Paignton Festival 2022

This event (previously known as Torbay Carnival Week) has been running for over 100 years and was originally held on one night as a procession night. Over the years, however, it has grown to run over nine days. Free entertainment is available for all the family with the aim to raise money for local charities and organisations. The week runs from 23 July – 31 July 2022. FIND OUT MORE

Cockington Sculpture Trail 2022

Cockington Court Sculpture Trail 22 starts in July when various insects of all shapes, sizes (and materials!) will descend on Cockington Court!

Art and culture enthusiasts, families and children all love exploring the trail, hunting for the 30+ diverse sculptures dotted around the Manor House and grounds. Many local artists get involved in the trail as it offers excellent exposure and a fantastic showcase for their work. The Sculpture Trail leads around the grounds of Cockington Court as well as involving some of our favourite hidden treasures, such as the Walled Art Garden, our Kitchen Gallery and inside the Manor House.

Cockington Sculpture Trail

The Trail runs every year throughout the summer until mid-September. Make sure you collect a trail map from the Visitor Centre. FIND OUT MORE
