English Riviera Spring Walking Festival

On 4th May 2024 to 19th May 2024

Located in South Devon and (the towns of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham) The English Riviera is a walker’s paradise. It has a very sheltered position, mild climate and numerous walking trails through woodlands, along winding coastal paths and hidden tracks. It provides the perfect destination for walkers of all abilities.

The South West Coastal Path meanders along this coastline and also holds the accolade for being an UNESCO Geopark. There are 140 Geoparks in the World and Torbay is the only seaside resort with this status.

This Walking Festival (in its second year) offers a mix of walks and talks that will entertain and inform in equal measure. The walks are hosted by experienced tour guides, but the web site also contains a selection of self-guided walks which you can enjoy at your own leisure.

  • Delightful - The staff were all very friendly and the captain kept us entertained with his 'dad jokes' throughout. Recommend 100% for all ages. Great trip. Thank you.
  • Excellent. Recommended. - Numbers on board restricted due to Covid, but it didn't spoil our enjoyment. The Round Robin three-in-one ticket is a must do if you are in the area.
  • A big thumbs up... - A great time was had by all. The staff were really friendly and great at explaining. We took the steam train then hopped onto the boat where we spent some time in Dartmouth. It's a lovely touch that even the dog gets a ticket. The views from the steam train were so pretty the train and boat were both very clean and comfortable. A big thumbs up from us!
