May Bank Holiday Weekend in Torquay

Well, its Tuesday and we're hurtling towards the busiest weekend in the year for our bed and breakfast business, www.buckinghamlodge.co.uk packed to the rafters after Friday so praying for some sunshine for our guests to enjoy

Theres quite a bit happening in Torquay over the Bank Holiday.  Take a look at the following and see if anything is there to tempt you down to our lovely English Riviera.

Torbay Classic Powerboat Race
Will take place in Torquay on 25th and 26th May 2013.  Meet the teams and view the raceboats from Friday 24th May on Haldon Pier. First race is Saturday 25th May at 3.00pm. Sunday racing starts at 12.30pm.

English Riviera Geopark Festival 25/5/2013 - 2/6/2013
During the annual festival, there’s fun for all the family with music, entertainment, arts and crafts in celebration of our incredible geology, landscape, culture and heritage. The annual festival really brings the Geopark to life, with an amazing range of activities to enjoy, from walks and talks, to arts and educational events, and even Geopark Cruises to experience our stunning natural heritage from the best vantage point - the sea

Torbay Sail Past - Monday 27th May
A large flotilla of sailing and motor craft will be forming a sailpast in the Bay to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Torbay Royal Regatta and the 150th anniversary of the Royal Torbay Yacht Club. Good vantage points around Haldon Pier and Beacon Quay

Of course, as well as these annual events there is so much more to do such as visiting Paignton Zoo, Babbacombe Model Village, Kents Cavern or mooching around the beautiful towns of Dartmouth and Totnes, taking a boat trip across the bay or a ride of the mini London eye wheel which has fantastic views over Torquay.

After all that activity you may need another holiday!
