I went to Paignton 2 years ago with Shearings, although the ride back was a drag (due to a crash on the motorway) we enjoyed ever minute, you cant beat being driven everywhere and the trips out were good, I went to Torquay in the 70s with Walls tours and enjoyed that as well, only snag with Torquay, is with it being hilly, I have a friend who did 3 tours to Scotland last year and is thinking of going again, I quite liked the Centre Parc holidays, been 3 times up till now, Ive only been abroad twice, once to Florida, (brilliant) and Jersey (it was shut)

It's amazing what some people expect to see out of a Torquay hotel bedroom window

We are off to Straspeffer, in Scotland in a few weeks, its a long ride, close to Inverness, with Shearings coaches, great out of season bargain, and we're off to Italy, Lake Maggorie in September. Love the Italian Lakes Torquay is good, but, hilly, and close to other very good places to visit, take your bus pass if you have one, we always take our when on hols in U.K.

Worked down there for a summer season back in the day, some great memories. Been through a few times since on work related matters, always a pleasure!

dougie when we're out and about we often see Shearings coaches and I say- there goes some Wiganers on a Winter break!

My Mum's family came from near there and we stayed at the Elmdene B&B which was well located and good value. We went out to Totnes to look at the castle. A guy there said it had never been attacked. Which didn't come as a surprize to me judging from the parking situation.

Plymouth, I went there a few times in the '80s, 90s. I used to stay at the Post House (just checked it's Crowne Plaza now). I went back there a couple of years ago, the Barbican is nice and the Hoe of course but the town centre is very run down now.
