Glorious Devon

Torquay is an excellent location from which to enjoy this holiday of variety in the beautiful West Country.

Holiday Highlights

• Steam Train ride to Kingswear

• River cruise along the beautiful Dart Valley

• Free time in Torquay

• Free time in maritime city of Plymouth

• Visit to the historic city of Exeter


We depart for the journey to Devon
to arrive in Torquay in the early afternoon for
the next 4 nights dinner, bed and breakfast.
After settling in to the hotel the rest of the day
is free to enjoy the local area.


We drive to Paignton and board the
steam train bound for Kingswear. Here we cross
the Dart Estuary to the attractive port of
Dartmouth. Many period dramas and films have
been shot around the town’s old quays and
narrow streets. After some free time here we
board a river cruise for the journey up the
beautiful Dart Valley as far as the market town
of Totnes. We then return to Torquay by coach.


Enjoy a day at leisure.


Today we head for the wild expanses
of Dartmoor passing the market town of
Moretonhampstead and Princetown, home to
the infamous Dartmoor Prison. Finally we arrive
at the maritime city of Plymouth where the rest
of the day is free for sightseeing. You can visit
the striking Plymouth Hoe where Sir Francis Drake played bowls before defeating the
Spanish Armada or wander around the
Elizabethan Barbican from where the Pilgrim
Fathers set sail for America. Alternatively, the
modern shopping centre is well worth a visit


Our brief visit to Devon is over too soon
as we make our way along the coast to Dawlish
and then to the historic city of Exeter for a visit.
Departing in the afternoon we then travel home
for an early evening arrival.
