Torre Abbey Museum, Paignton Palace Theatre and Torquay Museum are all marking Visit England’s English Tourism Week, taking place Saturday 30 March to Sunday 7 April, by giving offers to local residents.
The national campaign led by Visit England kicks off the summer season and is seen as an opportunity to raise the profile of tourism businesses, and for residents to experience tourist attractions right on their doorstep.
Torre Abbey Museum will be celebrating their upcoming summer exhibitions – The Printed Line and The BFG in Pictures.
On Saturday 30 March and Saturday 6 April, children and teens are encouraged to bring their ‘Big Friendly Grown-Ups’ to the museum for free with ‘One Big Friendly Grown-Up’ admitted free with one child or teen (under 19). There will also be a programme of family activities including nature printing and the planting of snozzcumbers (fees apply). On Thursday 4 April, and as a warm up to Minigog, the team at Torre Abbey will be opening up their doors in the evening for ‘Now That’s What I Call A Music Quiz’ where entrants will get to wander around the museum before teams compete against each other to be crowned ‘Musical Mastermind of Torbay’.
Torre Abbey is an award winning fantastic local attraction in the heart of Torbay. It’s a place local people may be aware of but may not have visited. With an exciting year ahead, we want to encourage local residents to visit once for free and to keep coming back all year round.
