Tor Bay

Arcs from Thatcher's Rock and Hope's Nose in the north around to Berry Head in the south. The Imperial Hotel offers exquisite views over the bay.


Boat trips

Wander down to the harbour to catch ferries and boats across the bay, out to sea of down the South Devon coast. We'd recommend the ferry to Brixham and the coastal trip to Dartmouth.


Enjoy local food at The Imperial Hotel

There are many restaurants, pubs and cafes as well. Number 7 Fish Bistro, The Elephant and Rockfish are all nearby.


Living Coasts

Superb coastal zoo next to The Imperial Hotel.


Torre Abbey

If you're interested in history and the arts then Torre Abbey is one of the best places to visit in the Westcountry. There's also Torquay Museum. If you're willing to travel, we'd highly recommend Exeter's Royal Albert Memorial Museum & Art Gallery (RAMM).


Kents Cavern

One of the UK's most important prehistoric sites.


Meadfoot Beach

For a day on the beach, follow the South West Coast Path east to Meadfoot Beach.


South West Coast Path

We'd also suggest continuing on the South West Coast Path to Babbacombe. If you're feeling energetic, take a ferry to Brixham, and walk back to Torquay on the coastal path.



Spend a day at Dartmouth. Use Higher Ferry and Lower Ferry to cross the Dart Estuary. Alternatively, experience Dartmouth via a coastal boat trip from Torquay.


Dart Gorge and Dartmoor National Park

Dartmoor rises west of Torquay and The English Riviera. The Dart Gorge is awesome. Haytor Rocks is the National Park's most popular tor.
