Torquay, with its seven green hills, nine beaches, palm lined promenade and lively harbour side there is no surprise that it is known as The English Riviera. With spectacular views across Tor Bay and a townscape more reminiscent of Monaco it is easy to imagine oneself living in the south of France rather than South Devon. Whilst Torquay owes much of its fame and history to its success as a Victorian resort it has not stood still and today it has transformed itself boasting a deep water marina alongside the harbour, where pavement cafes and boutique shops abound, along with a wide range of top class restaurants.
Further afield, the county capital of Exeter provides all of the shopping and dining experiences that one could wish for. Exeter's international airport offers a wide variety of business and leisure destinations within Europe and beyond. Mainline rail links can be found in Newton Abbot 5 miles away.
