Your Itinerary:

Day 1

Outward journey from your front door to the Club Class coach for the drive to the English Riviera, to arrive at our hotel late afternoon.

Day 2

A different mode of transport today! First we take the coach to nearby Paignton to board the Paignton and Dartmouth Railway for a steam train ride along the spectacular Torbay Coast to Kingswear. Here we join the ferry to Dartmouth before taking a circular hour-long cruise along the river and estuary. We have some free time in Dartmouth before the return train from Kingswear to Paignton.

Day 3

This morning we drive to Moretonhampstead and the House of Marbles for a coffee stop. This is a working glass and games factory making an unusual range of traditional games, puzzles, toys, marbles and glassware for many years. Meander round the old kilns and old pottery buildings, browse in the gift shop. From here we make our way to the coast, Teignmouth and delightful Dawlish where we spend time here to explore and obtain lunch before our afternoon return to Torquay.

Day 4

This morning is spent at leisure to discover our resort of Torquay. After time for lunch, we meet at the harbour to join the Western Lady Ferry service for the 30 minute cruise across the bay to reach Brixham with its beautiful harbour and maze of narrow, winding streets. Explore the harbour side shops, watch the fishermen, or just watch the world go by before we return to Torquay by coach for our final evening’s dinner.

Day 5

We return to our home area after a relaxing break on the charming English Riviera.
