The English Riviera has some of the best award winning attractions and events running right through the summer.
- Riviera Airshow: The Riviera Airshow has been bringing families and friends together since 2016, this free event has grown in popularity over the last few years attracting in excess of over 165,000 spectators to the Bay over the two days. Events are centred around Paignton Green, with free entertainment for all the family, including exhibition stands, bars, food stalls, display teams, inflatable slides, bouncy castles and fairground rides. Torbay Airshow visitors can also indulge in a range of retail therapy, including gifts, toys and festival essentials. Of course, it’s up in the sky where the breath-taking aerial action takes place, with a packed two-day programme of stunts, displays and flypas. The event is completely free (although car parking passes can be purchased).
- Paignton Zoo - With over 2,500 different animals across 80 acres, come rain or sun shine Paignton Zoo is a guaranteed fun filled day out for all family members. Paignton Zoo is one of the South West’s most exciting visitor attractions and allows you to get up close and personal with animals that are from different parts of the world. If you enjoyed Paignton Zoo, why not try Living Coasts, which is another popular attraction in Torquay. There is plenty to see and you get to mingle with the playful penguins, get up close to the otters, octopus and seals and many more.
- Pirate Thursdays in Brixham - Pirate Thursdays are held during the Spring and Summer school holidays where the majority of shenanigans will be held under the Old Fish Market on Brixham harbour side. Piratical fun for the young and young at heart, engaging with locals and visitors alike. A great opportunity to join in the amusing antics and have a great free day out.
