Torquay is a place to relax, to soak up the atmosphere, to take in the scenery in the parks and gardens. You can enjoy the experience of a Torquay holiday in a classical English seaside resort at all times of the year.
Stunning views are to be seen just about every where across Torbay, out over the English Channel, along the 40 miles of Lyme Bay to Portland Bill or inland towards the Ten Tors Dartmoor. Torquay is an ideal base from which to visit Dartmouth, Totnes, Exeter and Plymouth, all of which are only a few miles away. Along the 22 miles of English Riviera coastline are 19 beaches and coves.
The iconic palm trees, busy harbour and international marina could fool you into thinking you were on the Mediterranean. Enjoy long leisurely walks along the pier and promenade and take in the relaxed atmosphere. Make time to walk up the steps of Royal Terrace Gardens and take in the amazing sea views across the bay which are magnificent especially at night, with the lights reflecting onto the sea.
