Activities

Days out in Paignton can be largely taken up around the beachfront, which is packed with entertainment, activities and traditional seaside fun. As well as the gbeach and pier, there is also a variety of watersports available with opportunities to learn to sail or dive or to charter a boat for the day. The seafront green also hosts many festivals, fairs and musical events throughout the year and as night falls the promenade restaurants and bars come to life.

Although renowned as a traditional seaside resort, away from the seafront there are still plenty of things to do in Paignton. Take a trip on the steam railway and enjoy the spectacular coastal vistas, visit Paignton Zoo, Compton Castle or discover one of the superb walking routes and cycle paths which stretch along the South West Coast Path.
