Paignton Harbor

Paignton is a seaside town on the coast of Tor Bay in Devon, England. Together with Torquay and Brixham it forms the borough of Torbay which was created in 1998. The Torbay area is a holiday destination known as the English Riviera. The harbor was established in the 18th century and the local council has managed it since 1935. Today it remains a hive of activity, especially during the summer months and a vast range of different users enjoy the benefits of this unassuming maritime gem.

Formerly written Peynton, Payngton and Paington, the name is derived from “Paega” an Anglo-Saxon personal name, “ing” meaning “the people of” and “ton” an enclosure, estate or homestead, the original Anglo-Saxon settlement.
