Torquay is known as the Queen of the English Riviera, and enjoys a picturesque location on Tirbay in Devon, southwest England. Many British tourists flock here to enjoy the laid back atmosphere of Southwest England, with many quaint tea shops and cafes, cosy B&Bs and delightful pubs along the waterfront.

Torquay's beautiful sandy beaches are its main attraction, as well as the spectacular views of the large bay of Torbay. The waterfront is lined by an elegant palm-lined promenade and seafront gardens, and from here you get a fine view of the Italian-styled white villas perched high on the surrounding hillsides as well as the classic Victorian terraces. At The Strand you can explore the lively harbour and the international marina where luxury yachts are moored, and where such activities as sailing, jet-skiing and windsurfing are offered.

Nearby is the Torre Abbey Historic House and Gallery, founded in 1196 as a monastery and later adapted as a country house. The Torquay Museum, founded in 1845 by the Torquay Natural History Society, displays local pottery, Victoriana and local archaeology finds.

There are plenty of excursions to make outside of Torquay. A short drive from the town will take you to Dartmoor National Park, one of Devon's wilder places, famous for its ponies, granite Tors, wonderful nature trails and walks. Alternatively, Paignton Zoo, set in 80 acres of spectacular natural beauty, has well-represented scorching deserts, savannah, jungle and rainforests.

Torquay radiates charm, and within the town is an abundance of pavement cafés, pubs and restaurants where you can enjoy a meal and a refreshing drink while exploring the town. Market Street offers excellent shopping, while The Wintergardens and The Pavillions is the centre of Torquay's nightlife, and boasts nightclubs and theatres enjoyed by both tourists and locals.

To get to Torquay by car from London, take the M4 motorway and then the M5 to Exeter, after which you follow the A38 onto the A380 to reach Torquay. Alternatively, express trains depart hourly from London Paddington station to Exeter, where you can connect to Torquay. The journey takes approximately three hours.
