Paignton to Dartmouth Steam Train

The scenery on this picturesque line is breathtaking - from Paignton along the spectacular English Riviera Geopark coast line, to the picturesque stations at Goodrington and Churston, then on through the wooded slopes of Long Wood bordering the Dart Estuary to Greenway Halt (for the estate of the late Dame Agatha Christie) and on to Kingswear. From spotting dolphins to seals, kingfishers to buzzards, pheasants, herons and egrets, the wildlife is superb. With such a varied range of scenery and wildlife, this is one of the finest heritage steam railway journeys anywhere in Europe. A short foot passenger ferry takes you across the river Dart to the historic town of Dartmouth; home to the Britannia Royal Naval College, Bayards Cove, Butterwalk and Dartmouth Castle (England’s first Castle to have guns as its main armament). We have teamed up with English Heritage to offer you 20% discount on the entry price at Dartmouth Castle! Please show your train ticket, (which must be dated for the same day), when you get to the castle. Call into the English Riviera Visitor Information Centre on Torquay harbour side to purchase tickets.

Welsh National Opera - Family Day

, Following the success of last year’s Family Day, WNO again bring a mixture of workshops, demonstrations and a final concert to the historic rooms and impressive surroundings of Torre Abbey for an eye-opening summer’s afternoon for all the family. Take your time and decide what you’d like to enjoy next. You can wander at will from fun-filled singing workshops to fascinating instrument demonstrations given by members of the Orchestra and even take part yourself. Why not enjoy up-close performances by individuals and ensembles offering a taste of different sections of the orchestra. Lose yourself in the different sounds and atmospheres each space offers, before heading to the Spanish Barn for a concert by WNO Chamber Orchestra and WNO Wind Ensemble.

Concert in the Spanish Barn 3pm

Unwind as the WNO Wind Ensemble plays Dvořák's Wind Serenade before the WNO Chamber Orchestra performs Mozart's stirring Symphony No 40.

Brixham Fish Market Tours

Does your fish eating experience extend to just cod, haddock, salmon and mackerel? Then the Brixham Fish Market tour is for you, where you could see over 40 different types of fish at the auctions. Annually, more than £25 million of fish is landed and auctioned. Buyers include national processors (for supplying to top restaurants and supermarkets), and local fishmongers and restaurants. A good 50% of the auction is exported worldwide. Come along and see the auctions in action, as featured in the Sky Atlantic series 'Fish Town'. You will be guided around by Barry Young of Brixham Trawler Agents, who has years of experience in the fish trade. After the tour we then head off to Shipmates for an English breakfast.
