"Sittin' on the dock of the bay"


Goodrington is a coastal village in Devon, England. It is situated in Tor Bay and lies between Torquay and Brixham, less than 1 mile (1.6 km) south of Paignton.

Goodrington has a railway station, on the Paignton and Dartmouth Steam Railway, three beaches, a park with boating lake, various shops and other facilities. To the south there is also a popular dog walking route running along the coast to Broadsands. This passes several fishing spots and "Sugarloaf", a large hill with a view of the Bay.
