Paignton Guide

As part of what is known as the 'British Riviera,' it is easy to see why thousands of tourists descend on Paignton in Devon, England, each year. The coastal town was originally a Celtic settlement in the 11th century, but it grew into a fishing village when a habour was built in 1847. The town is home to some of Britain's best beaches which are easily reached by car hire in Paignton.

One of the most popular tourist spots in the town is the Torbay Picture House, which is still open to visitors on tours. It was built in 1907 and is thought to be the oldest cinema in Europe. It was also frequented by the famous crime writer Agatha Christie who lived in nearby Torquay. The cinema is in easy reach with cheap car hire in Paignton.

By far the most popular attractions in the area are the stunning sand beaches. While the English climate might not always but hot enough for basking, there are plenty of water sports to keep you busy at Preston Sands. The beach is easily reached with car rental in Paignton, where you can learn kite-surfing and sailing.

Broadsands Beach is a popular spot for bird watchers with its reed beds forming a habitat for many rare species. Hollicombe Beach and Saltern Cove are also popular with geologists due to their interesting cliff and rock formations, with the latter being a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

The town has good transport links with a railway station located on Torbay Road, just a short stroll from the beach. This offers daily routes into the English capital city of London, where you will find many of the country's best attractions.

Frequently asked questions

Is the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.
