The Devon holiday resort of Torquay is situated within Torbay, an area in the South West of England that includes two additional towns, Paignton and Brixham. When originally established Torquay was little more than a fishing port alongside near neighbor Brixham. In the 19th century however it quickly became known as a fashionable seaside location within its own micro climate, earning itself the nickname the "English Riviera".

Torquay is beautiful, with amazing views and activities its enough to keep any one entertained for days, unfortunately residents are not as welcoming to asians as one would expect, racial comments are common on the streets and service in pubs and restaurants is also a factor due to this.

I love Torquay, Paignton and the quaint fishing harbour of Brixham, but of the 3 I prefer Paignton for its beach and flat sea and town areas. It is a place I have visited on many occassions - mostly when I was much younger and it has fond memories. In fact one such memory was of me in the sea while my dad was sleeping in his deckchair - only for me to wake him up as the tide was literally inches from his feet! Among its attractions are the Babbacombe model village and Kents Cavern which is highly impressive. It has very good park and it now has a sea coast area which I'm waiting to visit. However, the only downside with both ... Read the complete review

Torquay in General The first time I went to Torquay I thought that this wasn't going to be that good compared to holidays abroad. To my surprise I really enjoyed it and tend to go there whenever I have the chance along with my wife. ~ Where did I stay? ~ Me and my wife stayed in a little hotel called The Coppice. It was run by two men who were as camp as Christmas but very friendly and polite although this has now changed as it has been taken over. I would fully recommend this hotel to anyone who plans on visiting Torquay for the first time. The hotel includes two swimming pools which considering the size of the hotel is a mighty ...

Torquay/Torbay is an ideal family holiday destination for those looking for Mediterranean climate without having to have the hassle to travelling abroad. I have lived in Torquay all my life and know matter where I travel to in this country of abroad, I can't think of a better place to live. In a relatively small area there are just so many places to see and attractions to visit. You can easily spend two weeks in Torbay and still not have time to see and do all that Torbay has to offer. Here are just a few. Cockington Village: This idyllic village is hidden in a deep valley just one mile from the bustle of Torquay. It is easily accessible ... Read the complete review
