Whether you choose to relax on one of the nine beaches within the bay, some beautiful and secluded, or sail from the international deep water marina situated in the busy harbour where numerous events take place throughout the year, including internationally renowned yacht races and the highly charged power boat championships.
Torquay offers a mild climate and a comprehensive range of shopping, eating and educational facilities. The bay has mainline railway links to London Paddington and the Cathedral city of Exeter is located within 40 minutes drive as is the Maritime Port of Plymouth. Regional airports at both Exeter and Bristol mean the whole country and the continent beyond are within easy reach.
At the turn of the 19th century, Torquay was a simple fishing village, two wealthy local families saw its potential as an idyllic retreat for England's rich and Royal; they too would surely benefit from the restorative qualities of the sea air, from a gentle climate, and the exceptional location.
