Set at the very heart of the English Riviera on the South Devon Coast, Torquay is the perfect destination for a winter warmer.
Monday We travel to Torquay, with tea & shortbread on arrival. There will also be a drinks reception this evening.
Tuesday Following breakfast, we enjoy a visit to Buckfastleigh, one of the most diverse towns in South Devon. The town is dominated by the Benedictine Buckfast Abbey and is a mix of ancient and modern. We return via Totnes, a charming town on the banks of the River Dart.
Wednesday Today we enjoy a visit to Dawlish, a traditional seaside town, with wonderful beaches. The town has plenty of interesting shops and a brook that runs through the centre of a wide open green, The Lawn. We continue to Topsham. Once a thriving port and shipbuilding centre, Topsham still retains a strong maritime flavour.
Thursday Enjoy a day at leisure or we may offer an optional excursion (charge applicable). Your driver will provide you with further information. There will be tea/shortbread and quiz in the lounge this afternoon.
Friday We depart after breakfast and return home.
Door to Door is NOT included or available on this departure.
