This beautifully illustrated guide shows how, over the years, the landscape has influenced the wildlife and the incredible human history of the area that includes the seaside towns of Brixham, Paignton, Torquay and Babbacombe.

Known since Victorian times as the English Riviera, it obtained worldwide recognition when the four towns became the first urban European and Global Geopark and were admitted to the Global Geoparks Network, assisted by UNESCO*, in September 2007 as the English Riviera Global Geopark.

This is the essential guide for exploring the area. It contains all the information you need about places to visit and things to see and do, together with easy-to-use colour maps.
