“Queen of the Riviera”, Torquay has been one of the UK’s top holiday destinations since Victorian Times, when the gentry promenaded, bathing huts were wheeled down the beaches and top socialites had charming villas overlooking the sea. It was the Victorians who first used the Riviera name to describe their favourite resort and their legacy remains to this day 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 the 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 promenade of stylish cafes and restaurants. Yet within minutes of the town centre there are beautiful beaches easily accessible by foot, road or water. If you have a few hours to fill then there are attractions to suit every interest: from ancient evidence of cavemen at Kent’s Cavern to modern day amusement in miniature at Babbacombe Model Village.

A very cosmopolitan resort but one with a fascinating heritage. Agatha Christie lived here and the town is full of reminders of her prolific work and colourful life.
