Paignton in Devon

Paignton is a cute town located on the south side of Devon, on the coast of the Tor Bay.  It has Celtic origins and originally was a small, fishing village.  It gained in popularity as a tourist destination in recent years and has even merged with nearby villages as it has increased in population.  You can expect a town that is easy to get around with plenty to see.  Oh, and did we mention that its name means "pudden eaters?"  Yes, you can get authentic Paignton Pudding there!  There is much history there, but with many historical buildings demolished or closed such as the Royal Bijou Theater and the Torbay Picture House.  Still there is plenty to see and do here! 

Getting to Paignton

The Exeter International Airport is hands down the closest airport to Paignton.  There is a railway line that links to Torquay and London.  There are also plenty of bus stations and taxis around for travel.  Going by foot to some attractions is possible as well. There is the potential to enjoy a ferry or a boat for travel as well, if you're feeling adventurous!

Activities and Things to Do

There are lot of fun and exciting things to do in Paignton that are anything but boring, and yet oh-so typically tourist. Starting with museums, the Dartmouth Steam Railway and Boat Company is a scenic railroad and boat tour exhibit. The Paignton Zoo Environmental Park is an exiting adventure on its own as well as educational. Then of course there is the beach, which is very close and nearby, and Goodrington Sands makes it as one of the top attractions in the area.  Victoria Park and Compton Castle are two very lovely outdoor adventures.  If you're looking to stay in, the Palace Theatre and the Apollo Cinema are two great places to see a film or a live show. 

When Should I go?

Paignton of Devon has your standard maritime weather as well as the standard wedding seen in England.  Expect mild and temperate summers and freezing winters.  If you are planning to take part of the beach life, be sure to come during the hottest months possible because even the average temperatures in England are not so warm!  If going to the zoo or gardens, you are going to want to have warm weather as well.

Nightlife in Paignton in Devon

Two pubs that are great include the Inn on the Green with gorgeous views of the sea and the Inn on the Quay, which is a typical pub that is also friendly for families.  Look out for the big water slide outside!  There are plenty of other bars and clubs as well, such as Henrys, the Ship, Gallery Nighclub and Bed Bar.  There is plenty to do by the sea as well with bars and clubs with seaside views – and don't forget a nighttime stroll on the beach!
