Torquay, a delightful seaside resort in lovely southeast Devon, is known as the Queen of the English Riviera, as well as the birthplace of crime-writer Agatha Christie. 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.

There is much to see on a walking tour around Torquay, and it's an ideal town for exploring on foot. Take a stroll along Torquay's beautiful sandy beaches and take in the spectacular views of the large bay of Torbay. It is lined by an elegant palm-lined promenade and seafront gardens, and from here you get a fine view of the Italian-style 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.

Torre Abbey Historic House and Gallery, which was founded in 1196 as a monastery and later adapted as a country house, is Torbay's most historic building. It contains a fine collection of 19th C paintings, sculptures, Torquay terracotta pottery and antiques, mementoes of Agatha Christie, and a Victorian tearoom. These medieval monastic remains are the most complete in Devon and Cornwall.

The Torquay Museum, founded in 1845 by the Torquay Natural History Society, displays local pottery, Victoriana and local archaeology finds.
