A bustling seaside resort since Victorian times and informally known as The English Riviera, Torquay is a vibrant town on the South Devon coast, and is a popular destination for many British families. Torquay holidays promise much more than the traditional seaside staycation. With fine dining restaurants and boutique cocktail bars dotted through the town, as well as a pretty marina, palm tree lined promenade and theatre, there’s a real sense of being somewhere special.
One of three towns forming Torbay, Torquay makes a great base from which to explore the neighbouring towns and beaches of Paignton and Brixham, and a short ferry trip from the harbour will see you across the bay in under half an hour.
With so many family-friendly activities to choose from such as Kents Cavern, The Model Village, Living Coasts and Bygones this really is a fantastic way to spend a holiday in South Devon.
