Torquay has been inhabited since the Palaeolithic times. The first major building constructed in Torquay was Torre Abbey, founded in 1196. Later the town was immortalised in the iconic Fawlty Towers starring John Cleese. Agatha Christie was born and raised in the town, and a tour with plaques have been dedicated to her work. Its mild climate and beautiful beaches have given Torquay the nickname the English Riviera.
Torquay has an abundance of attractions and places to visit. If you want to enjoy life by the sea there are beaches, bays and coves to explore, fishing trips, nature cruises, coasteering, paddle-boarding and all kinds of new experiences to try.
There are two theatres, a cinema and plenty of independent shops. Foodies are spoilt for choice with more tea rooms and restaurants then it would be healthy to visit in a single calendar year (although we’d be willing to try!).
If you’re looking for a new passion once you’re in your new home, there’s a wide variety of groups and societies for cooking, pottery, painting, photography, sports and all kinds of interests open to experienced hands and first-timers.
Devoid of major roads, Torquay offers a slightly slower pace of life, even for the motorist. The main route is the A380 which runs to the M5 and towards the nearest airport at Exeter, approximately 41 minutes away. Trains to London run around 3 hours and 9 minutes.
