Local Weather

Goodrington nestles in the centre of Torbay, which, due to it's mild climate, has become known as the English Riviera.

Enjoying some of the best weather Britain has to offer, the English Riviera boasts an exotic vegetation more usually seen in hotter countries.

There are warm spots along the South Coast of England that are the result of local variations in climate and Torbay is in one of these.

The three towns of Torbay - Torquay, Paignton and Brixham - have long attracted tourists because of the warm local climate.

Snow is very unusual in Torbay. Because winter temperatures very rarely fall below zero, gardeners in Torbay can grow plants that can be grown in few other parts of the country.

This has encouraged Torbay Local Authority to devote considerable resources to maintaining a beautiful year-round display of flowers and plants in public places and to enter national horticultural competitions - often winning first prize
