Torquay & the English Riviera

Hotel Richmond

5 & 8 Days Half Board by Coach

Highlights: Devon, Dartmoor National Park, Dartmoor, Brixham, Dartmouth, Totnes, Exmouth

The most glamorous of all West Country resorts, Torquay overflows with vitality and places of interest. The town has a unique international flavour and the palm trees, the bustling harbour with its luxury yachts, and the elegant street facades give it an almost Mediterranean feel.

By night the theatres stage star-studded shows during the season, and by day there is a wealth of things to see and do including some lovely parks and gardens and miles of glorious seafront walks around the bay.

per person


Full day: A day of contrasts as we head for Newton Abbot, a delightful Devon town, where it is market day. Wander through the old Butter Market or just enjoy the outdoor market in the town square. Then it’s on to Dartmoor National Park, a wild expanse dotted with granite rocks and tors rising up from the barren bogs, heather clad moors and hidden villages. We visit Widecombein- the-Moor, a typical Dartmoor village, probably best known for Widecombe Fair and its associated folksong.

Full day: Our tour begins with the short drive to Brixham, an ancient fishing port which is still busy today, before arriving in the town of Dartmouth. This once prosperous port, whose naval tradition goes back to medieval times, is nowadays a haven for yachts and pleasure boats that congregate on the River Dart Estuary and where an optional cruise on the River Dart is possible.

Half day: Today we drive to Totnes, an old market town which is still a working port for seagoing vessels making their way inland from Start Bay.

8 Day Holiday Bonus!

Full day: As an added bonus on 8 Day holidays, you’ll also enjoy an extra full day excursion. We tour around the estuary of the River Exe to reach Exmouth, where the river flows into the sea. Following a morning stop at this small resort, we continue to nearby Exeter, Devon’s cathedral city with a long historic past.
