Torquay’s Land Train
Voted a Top 10 UK Destination for the past 3 years,
everyone agrees with us about just how great Torquay is.
Torquay is the birthplace of Agatha Christie and many of her
most famous novels were inspired here.
The iconic palm trees, sweeping sandy beach and international
marina could fool you into thinking that you’re in Monaco.
Stroll along the Victorian promenade and take in the harbour,
marina and waterfront or walk up through the illuminated Royal
Terrace Gardens and be amazed by the stunning sea views.
We have a great selection of events and festivals throughout the
year. Enjoy a growing choice of quality waterfront restaurants,
bars and cafes situated around Torquay harbour, seafront and the
new development at Abbey Sands serving a great choice of local
fish, seafood, continental dishes and cocktails! There’s the sea to
explore too with regular seasonal ferries to Brixham and Paignton.
From award winning dining andWest End shows, to leisurely
shopping and a great choice of accommodation to suit all budgets,
Torquay has everything you want for the perfect break away.
Born in Torquay in 1890, Agatha Christie
became, and remains, the best-selling
novelist of all time.
