You’ll find us on the south coast of Devon, just south of Exeter and east of Plymouth. If you’re coming from the north, head for the M6 or M1 towards Birmingham and then take the M5 southbound. If you’re coming from the Midlands, take the M5 down to Exeter, and then join the A380. From London, take the M4 for Bristol and then join the M5 southbound. From Newton Abbot, follow signs for Torquay.

If you live near a major airport, travelling by air can be fast and convenient. Check online for flights to Exeter International Airport. Shuttle buses run regularly from the airport to Exeter city centre, from there you can take a train, bus or taxi to Paignton or Torquay.
Once you’ve arrived in the English Riviera it’s so easy to get where you need to go by bus, you’ll never need to use your car! Brixham, Paignton and Torquay all benefit from a comprehensive bus network which will take you to many of the destinations and attractions in the area.
Stagecoach South West runs a network of bus routes right across the English Riviera and beyond so wherever your day out takes you, they can help you get there.
Either the Hop12 or Hop22 will take you to most of the attractions as well as many of the area’s most popular hotels. Both run 7 days a week from early morning until late evening.
An open top service, the 122, runs from Easter and throughout the summer season from St Marychurch to Torquay Harbourside and then along the seafront to Paignton before finishing at Paignton Zoo.
