One of the jewels in the English Riviera's crown, Paignton welcomes everyone, from seaside holidaymakers to those looking for romantic & sightseeing breaks. From award-winning restaurants, bars and cafes to the stunning beaches & brilliant zoo, Paignton is a place you will come back to year after year.
Paignton Pier first opened to the public in 1879 and is an impressive 780 feet long. This pleasure pier has loads of attractions and amusements for all the family to enjoy and also offers a long, flat easy walk to the town centre. There's a great mix of high street stores and independent retailers stretching from just behind the beach along Torbay Road, reaching into Hyde Road and the pedestrianised Victoria Street.
