Torquay has been one of the UK’s top holiday destinations since Victorian Times. It was the Victorians who first used the ‘Riviera’ name to describe their favourite resort and their legacy remains with beautiful gardens around the seafront and elegant Victorian facades along the main streets. Torquay’s Waterfront is the focus of life in the town. Here you’ll find a palm-lined promenade, seafront gardens, a lively harbour and an international marina.
Living Coasts Wildlife Attraction is a new centre piece and around is a growing area of stylish cafés and restaurants. Yet within minutes of the town centre there are beautiful beaches easily accessible by foot, road or water.
Once the home of Agatha Christie, Torquay is a very cosmopolitan resort but one with a fascinating heritage.
