Join us as we head to Devon and the English Riviera for our Summer on the English Riviera tour.  Enjoy the varied scenery of red cliffs and rocks, secluded wooded hills and the magnificent bay of Babbacombe with beautiful beaches, coastal path walks, great attractions, and local seafood.  Walk the highest clifftop promenade in the UK or take a trip on the Babbacombe Cliff Railway. If you can pull yourselves away from this beautiful resort, join us on our excursions to the nearby resort of cosmopolitan Torquay and along the coast to Sidmouth, the hidden gem of the Jurassic Coast. Travel inland through beautiful mid Devon scenery to the town of Tiverton, if you love local history Tiverton is brimming with heritage waiting to be discovered. On the outskirts of Tiverton is the Grand Union Canal where we will board a brightly painted barge drawn by a magnificent heavy horse, sit back, relax, and enjoy as we take a very leisurely journey through beautiful scenery, surrounded by wildlife. Our Babbacombe tours are always popular, so what are you waiting for, don’t miss out on this wonderful tour on the English Riviera.
