If you want to rent a caravan in Paignton for Regatta Week it’s best to book well in advance since thousands of people converge on the town every year for this event. This year Paignton Regatta starts on the 8th August and finishes on 15th.
It’s a fun packed week on the South Devon coast of traditional British seaside games and activities for all the family to enjoy. Some you can participate in and others can be watched. There are dog shows, motorcycle and bicycle races and stunts and fireworks; you can swim around the pier or build sandcastles on the beach in the “Beat The Tide” Competition.
For the children, there is a Corner dedicated to dinosaurs and a Funfair with new rides including the 80ft ‘Over The Falls’ as well as other rides to suit children and adults of all ages
You can play skittles or pelt someone in the stocks on Paignton Green and afterwards enjoy a Charity Cream Tea. There are many activities on the Green including jugglers, magicians and face painters as well as a variety of kid’s games.
Supermarkets and local shops will be open at normal times during the Regatta but there will also be plenty of stalls selling all manner of things including arts and crafts, local produce, souvenirs and a wide variety of other goods.
The Beach and Harbour
On the beach you can enjoy a cold beer from Foster’s Bar and watch the “Beat the Tide” Competition where teams build magnificent sandcastles at low tide. They have to stand on the sandcastles for as long as possible as the tide comes in.
In Paignton harbour you’ll be able to look at the RNLI Torbay Lifeboat and learn something about its history and the way it works.
Food and Drink
There are so many pubs in the town where you can enjoy traditional English food as well as restaurants serving international cuisine. Cafes, bars and fish and chip shops are also in abundance so there is always something to eat in Paignton no matter what hour of the day you would like to eat.
