Torquay has been beloved by many since the 1800s when the English Riviera became a fashionable place to holiday. A picturesque, coastal town, it offers a host of activities and sights for all the family. From seaside strolling, to hidden history to colossal caves, Torquay is sure not to leave you disappointed. Close to both Exeter and Plymouth, this town is close to Babbacombe Model Village, a tiny and incredibly relatistic reconstruction from which you can see The Shard and up to 13,160 figurines. Torquay is also home to the geologically fascinating Kents Cavern, full of stalagmites and tites, as well as remains of scimitar-toothed cats and wooly mammoths. Why not stroll around Britain's only coastal zoo, Living Coasts to spot otters, starfish and puffins, or just enjoy the bustling town full of coffee shops before heading to the beautiful beaches. Whatever brings you here, Torquay is sure to charm.
