ENGLISH RIVIERA WALKING TOURS
My wife and I moved to Torquay 4 years ago, drawn by the breath-taking scenery of The Bay, its beautiful beaches and healthy lifestyle.
With 22 miles of the South West Coast Path running through Torbay, there is no shortage of walks to revitalise your soul and put a spring in your step!
English Riviera Walking Tours show-cases this stunning environment, whilst conveying fascinating facts and intriguing myths about Torbay.
On the tours, guests hear stories such as:
And of course, no visit to Torquay is complete without joining our Agatha Christie tour, and listening to the story of her extraordinary life
Tours take place every day, offering walks which vary in duration from 1 ½ hours to 3 hours.
Pilgrim Heritage Sailing Foundation
Pilgrim Heritage Sailing Foundation operates a Heritage Brixham Sailing Trawler.
The technique of trawling was invented in Brixham and Pilgrim is the oldest surviving Brixham Trawler still in operation. We run sailing trips from April to October for people to experience life onboard a wooden sailing trawler. Alongside this we have a new 5 year strategy to develop an education programme around the heritage of the trawling industry ) and traditional sailing skills, an environmental programme engaging with partners in plankton monitoring, and a programme of events around wellbeing and connecting with the natural world.
By sharing the story of our part in the heritage of the fishing industry we can also help people to explore the environmental impact of the fishing industry today and support conversation about the conflicts between more sustainable practice and the economy of Torbay.
