Christmas and New Year in Torquay

It’s that time of the year again when we start thinking about Christmas and the New Year. Some of us like to stay at home for the festivities but a growing number like to get away and have others do all the hard work for them.  There has never been a better time to spend Christmas in Torquay, don’t just think of South Devon as a summer destination, there is lots going on throughout the year and Christmas on the English Riviera is no different.  Here at the Lincombe Hall we manage to create a unique atmosphere that gives you that Christmas feeling the minute you pull onto our drive, as you can see from our stunning fairy lights!

Lincombe Hall’s Fairy Lights

Christmas in Torquay has always been special and this year will be no different.  Babbacombe Model Village has it’s famous Winter Wonderland running from December 14th 2013 to January 5th 2014 with it’s amazing realistic snow effects covering much of the gardens. A truly stunning winter landscape complete with picture-postcard thatched villages covered in snow. From dusk, the best time to visit, thousands of lights twinkle and sparkle turning this wonderland into a magical world.

Kents Cavern are giving you the opportunity to meet Santa in his underground grotto. Join the Christmas Gang on an underground fun filled adventure in search of Santa. A pantomime show around the decorated caverns with interactive “pie-making” and live “present-wrapping”.

If you fancy a trip to the theatre the choice is endless, here in Torquay the Princess Theatre is hosting many acts, shows and pantomimes over the Christmas period, including  That’ll Be The Day Christmas Special, Jack and the Beanstalk, Royal Marines Christmas Spectacular, and many, many more.

So if you feel like leaving all the hard work to someone else over Christmas and the New Year and enjoying a break in Torquay, why not visit us at the Lincombe Hall, where we have the festive period covered the minute you walk through the door.
