The English Riviera is packed with many attractions and places to visit. Why not visit Cockington Country Park in Torquay? Its thatched taverns, craft centre and horse and carriage rides make a great day out!

Within Paignton is a long stretch of golden sandy beach, a multi-screen cinema, the world-renowned Paignton Zoo, the Steam Railway and a host of other attractions to entertain the whole family.

Further afield lies Dartmoor - a beautiful National Park. Wild ponies, picnic areas and numerous beauty spots make it a must-visit attraction.

With all the glamour and style of a Mediterranean resort, the English Riviera really does live up to its name, and with one of the best climates in Britain, it's holiday time all the time.

The programme incorporates something for everyone, with fantastic firework displays, festivals, carnivals, regattas, sporting events, with special appearances from famous faces, not to mention the Red Arrow Display Team.
