    7 Quirky Facts About Torquay

    1. Mysterious Girl
      The Queen of crime fiction, Agatha Christie was born in Torquay and the town celebrates her work.
    2. Pretty Poetry
      The poet, Elizabeth Barrett (“How do I love thee, let me count the ways…”) also lived in Torquay.
    3. The Road to Somewhere
      Despite the (wonderful) lack of overly congested traffic routes, Devon actually has 8,000 miles of roads, more than any other county.
    4. The Cornish Devon Pasty
      The Cornish pasty actually comes from Devon not their Cornish neighbours. The earliest recorded recipe is over 500 years old and came from a recipe book in Devon (step back, light fuse and run…!).
    5. Cream THEN Jam
      The battle of the cream teas still rolls on and is so hotly disputed it’s a wonder the UN haven’t stepped in! Is it jam then cream or cream then jam? Devon and Cornwall have been at loggerheads over this very topic for years, both claiming theirs is the only way (and who makes the best cream teas… Is this what you call a ‘food fight’?).
    6. Jaw Bone
      The oldest human remains in Britain were a jaw bone which carbon-dating has linked back to 44,200 BC.
    7. D-Day
      23,000 men sailed from Torquay for the D-Day landings in June 1944.

    Best Of Torquay

    Torquay has so much to offer, but everyone has favourites right? Once you’re settled, here’s our pick of the best of Torquay;


    If you want to join the (bun) fight over who serves the best cream tea (Devon vs Cornwall), then head to Angels. Seriously, the argument ends right here. Just the best cream tea ever!



    This fabulous zero waste shop will help you to keep making a difference. Eco-friendly toiletries, organic foods, simply your own containers and only buy what you need. Brilliant.


    Churston Farm Shop

    Bays Brewery

    If there weren’t already enough reasons to love Torquay then Bays Brewery really do tip the balance. This award-winning independent brewer IS the taste of Torquay.


    Roly’s Fudge Shop

    We can forgive many things, but going to Torquay and not visiting Roly’s Fudge Shop for some of the best ice cream in the South West? Unforgivable!


    About Torquay

    About Torquay

    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.
