Torquay is full of surprises with its magnificent horseshoe-shaped bay, swaying palm trees, elegant Victorian villas, pretty marina, sweeping sandy beach and its fascinating Agatha Christie connections.
Torquay's history is bound up in the Napoleonic Wars when the town became a watering hole for the rich elite who could no longer visit continental Europe and who were greatly struck by its beauty and mild climate. Following the Battle of Waterloo, Napoleon was held captive on the HMS Bellerophon in Tor Bay for two days and is reported to have exclaimed 'Quel Bon Pays' (what a lovely country).
Over the years, a glittering array of creative and well-connected personages visited the resort and these have been immortalised by the popular Blue Plaque Heritage Trail around Torquay. Famous authors included Flora Thompson of Lark Rise novels and Charles Kingsley who penned the Water Babies. Rudyard Kipling spent two years at Rock House in Torquay, and poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning spent time at the now Hotel Regina on Torquay harbourside. Hesketh Crescent in Torquay was once leased to Charles Darwin and Engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel also had a long association here.
The Victorians coined the term English Riviera, by now well established as a fashionable holiday destination, and the very first promotional guide was launched 100 years ago.
Torquay is an absolute haven for foodies with a collection of seriously good eating experiences from celebrated restaurants to award-winning fish and chips. You'll love the seafood restaurants with delicious fish sourced from nearby Brixham's famous Fish Market. Families are well catered for with plenty of family friendly eateries just strolling distance from the bustling harbour.
Families and Fun
The perfect place for families, Torquay has a huge number of attractions with Living Coasts, an amazing marine zoo perched over the harbour, the world famous Agatha Christie Trail, Torre Abbey and Gardens, boat trips around the Bay and to nearby Dartmouth, Waves Leisure Pool, Babbacombe Model Village, Bygones plus the amazing Kents Cavern, one of Europe's top prehistoric Stone Age caves. There's also a year-round calendar of exciting events.
Soak up the sights
The views from the lovely Royal Terrace Gardens are spectacular with the magnificent new illuminated staircase a real treat after dark. From here, you can see right across the large sheltered bay to Brixham and Berry Head. Torquay is part of the UNESCO-supported English Riviera Global Geopark, a unique area where cavemen and prehistoric beasts once roamed and its natural beauty has real 'wow' factor.
Strolling and Walking
The spectacular landscape around Torquay will make you want to explore further and there are 22 miles of coastal footpath to enjoy. Take the path behind the famous Imperial Hotel and you'll enjoy a delightful stroll towards the lookout at Daddyhole Plain and on towards Meadfoot Beach. In the other direction you'll pass some lovely headlands and catch sight of the steam train working the gradient to Churston near Brixham. You can also visit the quintessentially English village of Cockington tucked into a pretty valley close to the town.
Torquay's sheltered bay makes it perfect for a wide choice of water sports including scuba diving, sailing, kite surfing, wind surfing and water skiing. The latest trend is the gentle but delightful sport of paddle boarding, perfect on the calm waters of Tor Bay.
Torquay comes alive in the evening and pretty lights illuminate the marina and the town. In addition to a wealth of dining choices, there's a great range of waterfront waterholes and chilled-out cocktail bars. You can enjoy a non-stop party in the popular nightclubs or why not book a top quality show at the Princess Theater, one of many vibrant theaters around the Bay?
The Locals are Friendly!
Torquay is a wonderful place for a short visit and a longer stay and offers a really warm welcome with friendly locals providing you with a truly memorable English Riviera holiday experience.
