Situation - Located in the heart of the English Riviera famed for its mild climate, crystal clear waters and miles of sandy beaches. With the arrival of the railway in 1848, Torquay's growth as a holiday destination for the rich and famous was spectacular. Tor Bay was chosen for the 1948 Olympic sailing events hosted by the Royal Torbay Yacht Club. The harbour, with its large marina, palm trees and subtropical gardens, elegant Georgian terraces, a myriad of bars and restaurants (one with Michelin-starred cuisine), remains the most attractive area.
Valencia has, perhaps, some of the finest views on the south coast. It faces due south, overlooking Torbay and the English Channel. Directly opposite, five miles distant, is Berry Head on the other side of the bay, and, to the right, views across the water of Brixham, Paignton and Torquay.
From Valencia you can observe some of the busiest shipping waters in the world; cruise liners, container vessels, The Royal Navy mix with yachts and pleasure craft.
